TicketCity Reveals Hottest College Rivalry Games
Amped fan anticipation for rivalry games drives ticket prices
Austin, TX (November 15, 2011) – The upcoming weeks in college football present some of the best rivalry games. After last week’s string of upsets, these games are not only important for rivalry bragging rights but to better a team’s standing in the BCS rankings. TicketCity highlights the teams not to be missed, and counts down the most popular rivalry games based on ticket sales, prices, customer inquiries, and searches on TicketCity.com.
Texas, Alabama, Florida, California, Oregon, South Carolina and Georgia, just to name a few, are states that will host some of the best in-state rivalry football games this season. Clemson will take on South Carolina on November 26th. Although the Gamecocks are currently seated lower, they will have home field advantage, which always plays a vital factor in an intense rivalry game. Another heated game, where the underdog will have home field advantage is when Alabama Crimson Tide visits the Auburn Tigers. Tickets for this game are averaging on the market place at $367 but TicketCity.com has tickets for as low as $196.
This Thanksgiving, Texas will visit long-time state rival Texas A&M for their last and final conference game. The Longhorns and Aggies have met each year since 1894 with the exception of six seasons. Now that A&M will be moving to the SEC conference this allows each team to leave it all out on the field. This game will be one watched by all of Texas. The average ticket price for this game is $302 but TicketCity.com is selling tickets for as low as $194.
Another long-time rivalry will take place between the Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen on December 10th. This matchup is one of the most traditional and enduring rivalries that started in 1890. This game is also the last regular-season match up in the college football schedule. Although both teams have seen better seasons, this is still a heightened rivalry that gives the winning team leverage and bragging rights. The marketplace has average ticket prices at $226 but customers can find tickets as low as $86 at TicketCity.com.
