TicketCity Reveals Top 25 Hottest College Football Games for Week 5
Despite slight poll shakeups and conference realignments, ticket demand and costs remain steady
Austin, TX (September 27, 2011) – As the fifth week of college football begins, demand for the hottest games still hold high with new matchups joining the rankings. With Texas A&M officially joining the SEC conference and LSU jumping Oklahoma for the number one spot in the AP Poll, these teams are hot on the list. 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.
A game not to be missed this week is Arkansas vs. Texas A&M as the Razorbacks and Aggies play this Saturday at Cowboys Stadium. The Aggies endured a tough home loss against Oklahoma State this past weekend. Even though they made up a 20-3 deficit going into half-time, it was not enough for a win. At the same time, Arkansas suffered a loss on the road against Alabama. This match-up is critical for both squads to see who can bounce back. The average ticket price on the market is $225, and prices start at $55 on TicketCity.com.
This week, stakes are high for the Alabama vs. Florida match-up. Before the season kicked off there were some speculation as to how skillful LSU, Oklahoma, and Alabama actually would be. However, each team has produced promising results against at least one top opponent thus far. Alabama legitimized its number three spot in the AP Poll after its strong win against Arkansas. The Crimson Tide will face stiff competition as they head to Gainesville. Having the home field advantage, the Gators are also feeling confident after their 48-10 over Kentucky last week. Both teams have powerful defenses but Alabama could be in for a surprise, facing Florida’s two dominant running backs, Chris Rainey and Jeff Demps. Tickets for this game average $366 on the market but TicketCity.com offers them as low as $110.
