Austin, TX (October 16, 2012) – The week in college football produced many exciting matchups and saw two teams climb back into national title contention. In the most anticipated draw of the weekend, the LSU Tigers defended their home turf in Death Valley, defeating the South Carolina Gamecocks 23-21. The win moves LSU up three spots in the AP Top 25 Poll, and inserts them back into the championship conversation. In Dallas, the Oklahoma Sooners annihilated the Texas Longhorns 63-21. The Sooners, once seen out of the BCS picture find themselves back in the Top 10 and talked about as one of the premier one-loss teams in the nation. TicketCity highlights these teams and many more that are 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.
Morgantown will be the site of a much anticipated matchup between two of the Big12’s top teams as the #17 West Virginia Mountaineers host the #4 Kansas State Wildcats. West Virginia comes off a devastating loss to Texas Tech, in which their high-powered offense was stymied by a pesky Tech defense. Geno Smith and the West Virginia offense are still as dangerous as ever, while the Wildcats can put points up with the best of them. Look for a high scoring affair, with two of the nation’s best Quarterbacks duking it out. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $226, however TicketCity currently offers tickets starting at $133.
The #6 LSU Tigers will make their first trip to College Station since 1995, when they take on the #20 Texas A&M Aggies at Kyle Field. The Tigers come off a season-defining win at home against #9 South Carolina, dismissing many naysayers and cementing their place among college footballs’ elite. Texas A&M, after dropping their season opener to now #3 Florida, has stormed back, winning their last five contests. This matchup features two great coaches and two storied programs going head-to-head for conference supremacy. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $359, however TicketCity currently offers tickets starting at $184.
