If any Iowa fans are hoping to snag a pair of tickets for the Hawkeyes Dec. 22 game against Colorado might be out of luck.
According to Jesse Smith, Executive Director and Legal Counsel for the Sanford Pentagon, the venue for the Iowa-Colorado game, tweeted Thursday that tickets for the Hawkeyes-Buffaloes contest have already sold out.
Furthermore, tickets sold out in a record 13 minutes.

The game against Colorado is the second-to-last non-conference game for Iowa on its 2017-2018 basketballs schedule.
The Sanford Pentagon, located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is the home of the NBA G-League team, and Miami Heat affiliate, Sioux Falls Sky Force. The pentagon can seat 3,250, which isn’t terribly big when you compare it to the home courts of Iowa and Colorado.
Iowa’s home court, Carver-Hawkeye arena, seats 15,400, and Colorado’s home court, the Coors Events Center, fits 11,064.
Still, this means Iowa and Colorado fans bought out over 3,000 tickets in a span of 13 minutes. That’s pretty impressive on the fans part.
The Buffaloes finished with a 19-15 record in 2016-2017, securing an NIT berth. Ironically, the Hawkeyes finished 2016-2017 with the same exact record, 19-15, while also garnering a berth to the NIT.
