Phones didn't stop ringing on Monday as Hawkeye football fans called in to book their trips to Outback Bowl in Tampa.

Winebrenner Red Carpet Travel in Iowa City works with the University of Iowa's Alumni Association to help people get to bowl games.

This year, they are offering two different packages. The first is a three night deal that costs $1,995, and the other is a four night stay that costs $2,095.

The company started selling the packages on Sunday and were already sold out of the most expensive option by Monday morning. The three night stay still has 100 spots available, but Winebrenner expects that to be sold out by Tuesday.

The company cautions travelers to book their trips fast.

"I would say to do it quick, because we watch for scheduled air, and it is filling out quickly," said Terry Tegen, general manager. "You have to get your package booked soon, because otherwise there is no air transportation."

People can book their packages online, over the phone, or in their offices.
