Our friends at TiqIQ have their own Top 25 rankings, the TiqIQ Top 25, which is based on each team’s average home ticket price. With one week of college football action in the books, the top three draws across the country by average ticket price remain unchanged. Notre Dame football tickets hold steady to the top spot with an average ticket price of $282 dollars, while Ohio State and Michigan follow the Irish at $250 and $215 respectively. These are currently the only three teams in the country with an average ticket price above the $200 dollar threshold.
Texas A&M Football tickets, with the return of Johnny Football, hold tight to the #5 spot, while the Oregon Ducks and Nebraska Cornhuskers swapped places around the Aggies. With their 66-3 thrashing of Nicholls, Prices for Oregon football tickets have jumped 15%, to an average of $188, just surpassing the Aggies at $187. Following a surprisingly tight contest against Wyoming, Nebraska has experienced the largest decline in average ticket price within the Top 25, falling 19% to $176 dollars. However, with the Aggies hosting the Alabama Crimson Tide next weekend, and tickets for that game currently on the rise, there’s a good chance that prices for Aggies tickets will start to climb.
This week will exhibit some major ticket sale power with two marquee matchups. Notre Dame will take on Michigan in their classic rivalry, pitting the first and third biggest draws in the country against one another. Also taking place this week is a classic SEC showdown between South Carolina and Georgia, pitting #14 against #7 in the TiqIQ Top 25 against one another. With these teams ranking #6 and #11, respectively, in the AP Top 25, there is quite a bit on the line.
Remember, to check their rankings every Monday to see if the Aggies can move up the ranks.
