LSU-Wisconsin opener hottest SEC ticket this season
BATON ROUGE - An analyst from a secondary ticket sales site has come up with a ranking of the Top 20 Most Expensive SEC Games for the upcoming college football season.
With kick off time rapidly closing in, Jake Sharpless at Rukkus dug into the data on SEC ticket sales in their secondary market database. With average ticket prices for the top 20 games in hand, Sharpless found it provided a “very accurate representation” of existing demand for the upcoming events.
His most interesting points include:
- Alabama/Auburn is currently the most expensive ticket for an SEC game or any college football game this season
- LSU/Wisconsin came in a fairly close second
- Six of the top 20 games feature out-of-conference opponents
- Five out of the top seven games will be played at a neutral site
Jake says Saban’s Alabama is clearly the hottest ticket in the Southeastern Conference and college football in general. Their games made up a quarter of this top 20. However, the Bayou Bengals did appear in two of the top three games.
