It’s that time of year again, when college football fans who don’t have season tickets are looking on secondary ticketing websites to buy seats to the most high-profile matchups.
If you’re an Alabama fan, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.
Alabama is playing in three of the five most expensive matchups of the college football season, according to TiqIQ, a secondary ticket market search engine.
The most expensive ticket of the season is, not surprisingly, the rematch of last year’s BCS title game between the Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers. TiqIQ currently lists the average price for a ticket to the Nov. 3 game at $632.71. Alabama’s opener versus Michigan at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, comes in at No. 2 on TiqIQ’s most expensive games to attend. An average seat to that game is $595.42, though fans can now find a cheaper option, as discount site LivingSocial.com started offering a standing room “ticket” package that includes a hot dog, chips and a soda for $89 last week. More than 2,000 of those tickets have since been purchased. Alabama’s Iron Bowl game versus Auburn comes in at No. 5 with an average listing price of $481.66, according to TiqIQ.
