Taylor Swift gaining on 1D – Tickifieds Top 10

TaylorSwift3Top Events Week 22 (5/22/2013 to 5/28/2013)

1. One Direction

Another week goes by with One Direction kicking everyone’s butts.  With recent announcement of 2014 tour dates don’t expect things to change anytime soon. Really hot right now are tickets to their 2014 concert in Dublin!

2.  Taylor Swift

Miss Swift continues to surge and comes in at an impressive #2 this week.  Although she is still a considerable distance from 1D, if she continues this trend she could surpass the current “kings of tickifieds”.  Popular Taylor Swift concerts include Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston.

3.  Hunter Hayes

The 21 year old country crooner Hunter Hayes has been hot this past week climbing up the charts all the way to #3 this week.  It’s no surprise he is up for several Teen Choice Awards including Top Male Country Artist.  Top Hunter Hayes concerts include 7/18 at the Porter County Fair in Valpo, 8/4 in Costa Mesa and Dayton Ohio on 7/23.

4.  Chicago Blackhawks vs Detroit Red Wings

With the Red Wings head to the NHL Eastern Conference next season, this mark the last time these old rivals will meet in the conference playoffs.  As such, it’s fitting that the Blackhawks have come back from the brink of elimination to force a historic Game 7.

5.  San Antonio Spurs NBA Finals

The San Antonio Spurs are not one of the most popular NBA franchises but that has not stopped them from continuing to win.  Spurs tickets for the 2013 NBA Finals are hot this week as this is probably the last hurrah for this current core of players.  Also, it doesn’t hurt that Spurs NBA Finals tickets are surprisingly affordable.

6. Ke$ha

Fresh on the heels of the debut of her new reality show, her summer 2013 tour with Pit Bull and solo tour this fall, Kesha is hot right now.  Hot concerts right now include Columbus OH,   Atlanta GA and Raleigh NC.

7.  San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers may have lost the Super Bowl but they are odds on favorites to win it all this year.  Fans are excited to see what exciting young QB Colin Kaepernick can do with a full season at the helm of the Jim Harbaugh offense.  Big games include the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, September 22nd against the Indy Colts and Houston Texans on October 6th, 2013.

8.  Boston Bruins vs Pittsburgh Penguins Eastern Conference Finals

It doesn’t get much better than an Eastern Conference Finals showdown between 2 historic rivals in the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins.  Games 1 and 2 will be played in Pittsburgh with Games 3 and 4 in Boston.  Game 1 is on Saturday June 1st.

9.  Alabama Crimson Tide

College football season seems like an eternity away but that has not stopped Alabama Crimson Tide fans from gobbling up tickets for the 2013 season.  Bama is expected to compete for a national title once again so demand should be strong all year.

10.  Beyonce

Beyonce will be returning to the states to resume her 2013 Ms Carter World Tour.  Popular shows include Brooklyn, Dallas and Washington DC.

Updated BCS Bowl Game Projections and Week 13 Games of the Week

Since the regular college football season is beginning to wind down, this week we decided to combine our updated BCS Bowl game projections with our top 10 games of week 13.  This is particularly fitting as many of this week’s top games also have huge implications on what match ups will be slated for the post-season bowl games.  Let’s kick things off with a look at the BCS Bowl game projections…

BCS National Championship Game

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Alabama Crimson Tide – With Kansas State and Oregon both losing on Saturday, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are the new #1 team in the nation.  Notre Dame has just 1 game left against the USC Trojans.  This would be a difficult match up if Matt Barkley was expected to play.  Howeverm, without the star QB, Notre Dame fans can pretty much start buying tickets to the BCS National Championship game in New Orleans.  With Oregon and K State out of the way, Alabama is in a good position to return to the big game.  The Crimson Tide will need to beat Auburn in the final regualr season game before facing the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC Championship game.  If the Bulldogs pull off the upset, they would likely earn a trip to NOLA.

Fiesta Bowl

Kansas State Wildcats vs Clemson Tigers – Although Kansas State lost this past Saturday, they will still win the Big 12 and should earn a trip to the Fiesta Bowl at the University of Phoenix Stadium.  However, Clemson is no lock here as they will need to beat South Carolina #13 South Carolina.  Should South Carolina win, Stanford will likley get the nod.

Sugar Bowl

LSU Tigers vs Oklahoma Sooners – Assuming Alabama is headed to the BCS title game, the SEC representative for the Sugar Bowl would likely be LSU.  The at-large team would then likely be the Oklahoma Sooners of the Big 12.

Orange Bowl

Florida State Seminoles vs Rutgers Scarlet Knights – FSU appears to have the ACC locked up and will represent them in the Orange Bowl in 2012.  With their loss to Syracuse last week, the 9-1 Louisville Cardinals will be edged out by Rutgers and earn an at-large berth to the Orange Bowl- all they need to do is beat an inferior UConn team.

Rose Bowl

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Oregon Ducks – With Oregon no longer in the BCS title game picture, they would likely represent the PAC 12 in the Rose Bowl.  Though, if Stanford beats UCLA, they could go to the Rose Bowl while Oregon heads to the Fiesta Bowl (over Clemson).  With Ohio State inelidgible, the Big 10 will likely be represented by Nebraska.

Updated 2012 BCS Bowl Projections

notre-dame-football

Will Notre Dame earn a trip to the 2012 BCS National Championship game?

College football tickets, and in particular the NCAA bowl game tickets, are some of the biggest money makers in the secondary event ticket market.  As such, selling college football tickets can be particularly challenging as thousands of ticket brokers are competing for the same customers.  While direct marketing bowl games is tricky until the actual teams involved are officially announced, the smart ticket brokers get ahead of the competition by anticipating the bowl bids and starting search engine optimization campaigns early.

As such, we thought it would be prudent to take a look at the current state of the BCS standings and make some predictions on who will be going to what BCS Bowl Games in 2012 (actually 2013).  Prior to this weekend it was a given that Alabama would again be playing in the BCS Championship game.  However, following Alabama’s dramatic loss to Texas A&M on Saturday, the BCS picture has changed substantially.  As it stands today, here is who we think will play in each of the 5 BCS Bowl game this season.

BCS National Championship Game:  Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Kansas State Wildcats

Although we have 3 undefeated teams that can all make the case that they should be in the National Championship game, the most likely match up is Notre Dame vs Kansas State.   Oregon has 3 games remaining and all will likely be against top 25 teams.  The Ducks close out the season against #13 Stanford and #16 Oregon State before playing in the PAC 12 Championship likely against #17 UCLA.  If the Ducks can win out they would be a shoe-in to be in the title game.  However, we see the Ducks slipping up against one of them.  Both Kansas State and Notre Dame has just 1 game remaining with a ranked opponent and will not have to play in a conference championship game.  The K-State Wildcats will play #15 Texas while Notre Dame will play #18 USC.  

Fiesta Bowl: Oklahoma Sooners vs. Georgia Bulldogs

With Kansas State likley headed to the BCS Championship game, the Oklahoma Sooners would represent the Big 12 in the Fiesta Bowl.  Assuming Alabama wins out in the SEC, that would mean the Georgia Bulldogs would probably get an at-large berth in the Fiesta Bowl as the #2 SEC team.

Rose Bowl: Oregon Ducks vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers

The Rose Bowl features the top teams from the PAC 12 and Big 10.  If we assume Oregon is going to falter down the stretch, then they would be Rose Bowl bound.  With the Big 10 down this year (Ohio State is not bowl eligible), that leaves the Nebraska Cornhuskers as the likely champion.  Both teams are popular and travel well which means strong ticket demand.

Sugar Bowl: Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Clemson Tigers

The Sugar Bowl could easily be represented by Georgia, Florida, or Alabama.  However, we feel the Crimson Tide are the best team of the bunch and should win in a SEC Championship game at a neutral stadium.  Alabama would then likely face the Clemson Tigers as the #2 team in the ACC in the Sugar Bowl.

Orange Bowl: Florida State Seminoles vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights

The Orange Bowl is represented by the top ACC team and an at-large team likely the Big East Champion.  The top ACC team should be Florida State.  The Big East champion is looking like Rutgers.  If the game turns out to be this match-up do not expect there to be much in terms of ticket demand.  FSU would be big time favorites.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 11 (2012)

alabama-football

Alabama will look to stay unbeaten against the #15 Texas A&M Aggies this week. A win and they are pretty much a lock to make the 2013 BCS Championship game.

After another week of college football, just 4 unbeaten (significant) teams remain.  Alabama, Kansas State, Oregon, and Notre Dame are all still trying to make their case that they deserve a shot at the BCS National Championship game.  The #9 Louisville Cardinals are also undefeated but it is highly unlikely they could significantly move up in the BCS standings with just 1 game against a ranked opponent (Rutger on 11/29).  That means it’s all going to come down to who can run out the table and who can make the best case.  No room for error from here on out.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 11 (2012)

1.  #1 Alabama Crimson Tide vs #15 Texas A&M Aggies

Alabama will have it’s last test of the regular season against the #15 TAMU.  After this game they just have Western Carolina and Auburn before heading on to the SEC Championship game.

2.  TCU Horned Frogs vs #2 Kansas State Wildcats

TCU will get their chance to knock out the #2 team in the nation in Fort Worth.

3.  #7 LSU Tigers vs #21 Mississippi State Bulldogs

This game would likely be the game of the week had LSU not lost to Alabama last week.  With 2 losses, LSU is virtually elimated from BCS contention.  Nonetheless, this should be a great game between 2 ranked teams.

4.  #14 Stanford Cardinal vs #11 Oregon State Beavers

This is a huge game that will have big ramifications for the PAC 12.  Both teams will be looking to keep pace with the Oregon Ducks in the North Division and further solidify their bowl bid.

5. #16 Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Penn State Nittany Lions

Nebraska has a big game this weekend against PSU.  They need to win to remain atop the Big 10 Legends Division Standings and stay in line for a trip to the Rose Bowl.

6.  Michigan Wolverines vs #24 Northwestern Wildcats

These two teams are fighting for position atop the Big 10 Legends division with Nebraska.  To the winner goes a chance at a Rose Bowl bid…..

7.  Boston College Eagles vs #4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish

The Boston College Eagles aren’t much this season but this is one of the best rivalries in college football.  BC fans would like nothing more than to ruin Notre Dame’s perfect season.

8.  #17 Texas Longhorns vs Iowa State Cyclones

The Longhorns will look to pick up their 8th win against a tough ISU team in Austin this weekend.  Texans love their college football!

9.   Viginia Tech Hokies vs #10 Florida State Seminoles

VA Tech is sitting at 4-5 and desperately needs a big win if they have any hope of making a decent bowl game this season.  FSU will be looking for another win with the hopes of cracking the top 10.

10.  Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. West Virginia Mountaineers

WVU has certainly fallen the past couple of weeks but they could become bowl bound with a win over OK State.
