Vanderbilt football has made TicketCity.com's list of top 25 hottest college football games
. As of Oct. 5, the Commodores' game against Florida is currently ranked 17th. TicketCity
's rankings are based on average ticket prices per game.
"While fan loyalty always plays into ticket pricing, this year performance is driving fan demand up. Upcoming games between old rivals will reveal the leading teams of the season and tickets for most teams in either conference will remain high," said TicketCity's CEO Randy Cohen in an interview with American Chronicle. He added that team rankings also play a large role in ticket popularity.
With an average ticket price of $450, Oklahoma at Texas is presently leading the pack.
However, as football season progresses and opportunities for potential upsets emerge, Vanderbilt still has the opportunity to slowly climb up the rankings. Ranked just ahead of the Vanderbilt-Florida game is Auburn at Georgia, and in 18th place is Arkansas at LSU.
Vanderbilt will be facing Florida on the Gators' home field in Gainesville on Nov. 7. Ticket prices are currently $225.
