TicketCity Reveals Top 25 Hottest College Football Games for Week 10
Notable upsets bring ticket prices down slightly; however fans remain loyal
Austin, TX (November 1, 2011) – Week 10 of college football starts off with some major upsets. The Big 12 Conference took a major hit this week after having Texas A&M and Texas Tech drop out of the BCS Poll. Wisconsin also lost some spots in the Poll after enduring a loss to Ohio State as well as Clemson losing to Georgia Tech. These unexpected drops make for an interesting start for week 10, but demand for key games remain steady as fans remain loyal. TicketCity highlights the teams not to be missed, and counts down the most popular games of the season based on ticket sales, prices, customer inquiries, and searches on TicketCity.com.
The most anticipated game of the season, LSU at Alabama, will take place this weekend. This is not only an ultimate showdown for the SEC conference but for college football all together. LSU has been able to maintain its number one spot for a good part of the season thus far; however Alabama is seated right behind them. This game presents the opportunity for Alabama to claim the number one seat and for either team to secure their inside track to the BCS national championship game. Both teams have strong defenses and an offense that loves to run the ball. The average ticket price for this game is $474 on the market; however TicketCity.com has tickets for $319.
Another intriguing match-up that will take place this weekend is the Texas Tech at Texas game. This season, both teams have encountered conference losses which have transpired into inconsistent results. Some might say the Red Raiders have one of the most unpredictable records this season. Tech looked strong after their victory over OU, however the Red Raiders unexpectedly loss to unranked Iowa State the following week. Texas recently played their best game of the season, defeating Kansas with a shutout of 43-0. This game gives the chance for either the Red Raiders to redeem themselves or for the Longhorns to continue their strong performance. Tickets for this game are averaging at $163 on the marketplace but TicketCity.com has tickets starting as low as $80.
