Alabama At Texas A&M Is Most Expensive College Football Ticket Of 2013 At $744
Alabama won the college football national championship in January with a convincing 42-14 victory over Notre Dame. It capped a dominant 13-1 season where the Crimson Tide outscored opponents 541 to 153. The only blemish was a 29-24 loss at home to Texas A&M and future Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel.
Alabama is ranked No. 1 in the preseason polls and will have revenge on its mind when it travels to College Station for a rematch on Sept. 14. The Alabama weight room has the 2012 A&M game playing on a continous loop on every TV in its weight room and the A&M logo is affixed to each weight station. Fans are jacked up for the game too with the average ticket price at $744 on the resale market, according to Vivid Seats, which makes it the most expensive college football game of the season.
Vivid combed its secondary ticket inventory for Forbes to determine the 25 most anticipated games of the year (see below). The average entry price for the ‘Bama-A&M game has risen $40 in recent weeks, despite concerns that Manziel would be suspended due to the autograph scandal that has engulfed him this month.
The minimum price to get into Kyle Stadium next month to see the national champs is $359. The average price of $744 is 35% higher than the next most expensive game, which features SEC heavyweight LSU at Alabama on Nov. 14. The average price for that annual battle is $550 with a minimum of $263.
