It’s almost that time of year again….college football season!!  This year’s teams are already lining up, getting ready and selling tickets quickly!  Fan loyalty is huge in college football, so that means that devoted fans are will to pay top dollar to see their teams compete.  TiqIQ, a ticket market intelligence site, comprised a list of the highest priced games, to date, for the whole season.

10.) LSU vs. Alabama, November 5th.  Avg. price $420.93.  Both ranked in Top 5, starting out.

9.) Florida vs. Georgia, October 29th.  Avg. price $423.83 This game has been labeled the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” and is played in Jacksonville, FL every year. This will be the 90th meeting between the two schools and Georgia has come out victorious slightly more than half the time.  This is notable because the Gators have won 17 out of the last 20 games.

8.) Georgia vs. Boise State, September 3rd.   Avg. price $437.91. At Georgia Dome and will draw a huge hometown crowd.  Last year was Georgia’s first losing season since 1996, they’re eager to prove their worth once again.

7.) Notre Dame vs. Michigan, September 10th.  Avg. price $457.07. This series is a classic, played every year since 1978.  This is also an exciting game because it will be the first night game in Michigan Stadium’s history and both teams will be wearing throwback jerseys.

5.) Ohio State vs. Nebraska, October 8th.  Avg. price $462.97. Nebraska is the new kid in the conference, so this is OSU’s first Big Ten visit to Memorial Stadium which holds the title for the most consecutive sellouts: 311.  The last game not to sell out was in 1962!

2010 SEC Football Championship Matchup Set

CamNewton-aubrun-tigers-ticketsHooray!  The best time of the year has arrived.  No, not Turkey Day nor even the Holidays.  The Bowl Championship games are firming up, culminating with the SEC Championship game which was just finalized.   The Auburn Tigers are set to play the South Carolina Gamecocks at the Georgia Dome on December 4th, 2010.

This is shaping up to be an entertaining and competitve game, given all the Cam Newton drama that has been going on.  After Auburn’s win versus Georiga, Newton was mysteriously absent after the game;  no interviews, no comments,no reasoning from the coaches,  no nothing.  That’s not surprising given the controversey over the allegations that his father solicited BIG money during the recruiting process.  Newton is the current Golden Boy at Auburn.  During the 3 hour, 39-minute battle against Georgia, with 299 yards in total offense, Newton was on fire.  He became the first player ever in SEC history to throw 2,000 and rush for 1,000 in a season.  Although Auburn is looking primed to make an appearance in the BCS title game, they will still have to beat the defending National Champion Alabama Crimson tide in the Iron Bowl and beat the Gamecocks in the SEC title game in order to guarantee a spot in the big game.

South Carolina, on the other hand, is fresh off a major beat down of the Florida Gators.  Steve Spurrier was able to best his former team 36-14 in order to qualify for their first SEC Championship game since joining the conference in 1992.  The Gamecocks were 0-12 in Gainesville up until this big win.  Although the South Carolina Gamecocks are just 7-3 (5-3 SEC) they certainly have momentum on their side with big wins over Alabama and Florida on their resume.  They also will not have to deal with the distractions plagued by Auburn.  There is no doubt that head coach Steve Spurrier will have his players well prepared with so much at stake.  A win over Auburn and South Carolina will advance to the Bowl Championship Series.

Auburn will no doubt be heavy favorites in the SEC Football Championship game as they are currently ranked #2 in the Nation.  A win for the Tigers and they will be bound for the BCS title game.  Stay tuned to see how the soap opera unfolds.
