College Football Top 10 Games Week 6 (2012)

Georgia Bulldogs Football

The Georgia Bulldogs will host South Carolina in Tickifieds Game of the Week!

What a great weekend of college football.  In last weeks’ game of the week, we saw the WVU Mountaineers beat out the Baylor Bears 70-63 in the highest scoring Big 12 football game ever. Heisman Trophy candidate Geno Smith threw for an amazing 656 yards and 8 touchdowns.  Perhaps most impressive is that Smith had more touchdowns (8) than incompletions.

This week we have another great lineup of college football games.  In fact, there are five games that will feature two Top 25 ranked teams.  None of these is bigger than or week 6 game of the week between the South Carolina Gamecocks and Georgia Bulldogs. Even though the Bulldogs are ranked #5 and the Gamecocks sit at #6, there are still 2 other SEC currently ranked ahead of them (Alabama and LSU).  This is a must win game if either team has hope of earn a trip to a BCS Bowl.

So without further adieu, here are the best games this week to focus your ticket marketing efforts on.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 6 (2012)

1.   #6 South Carolina Gamecocks vs #5 Georgia Bulldogs

Two of the best teams in the country will go head to head with a whole lot on the line!

2.  #12 Ohio State vs #21 Nebraska Cornhuskers

The Big 10 has not been impressive this year but2 of the better teams will meet head to head.

3.  #10 Florida Gators vs #4 LSU Tigers

The Gators are the forgotten team of the SEC.  A win over LSU and the Gators will return to National prominence.

4.  #11 Texas Longhorns vs #8 WVU Mountaineers

All the talk of the Big 12 thus far has been about Geno Smith and WVU.  Texas can leap frog the Mountaineers with a big win this weekend.

5.  #2 Oregon Ducks vs #23 Washington Huskies

The Washington Huskies have surprised quite a few already so Oregon will have no excuses if they under-estimate them.

6.   #15 Clemson Tigers vs Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

While this should necessarily be a close game, this game features a pretty intense rivalry.  Fans always circle this game on the schedule.

7.  #9 Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Miami Hurricanes

Notre Dame Football is back!! Irish fans always travel well are all reared up to head to Solider Field in Chicago to watch Notre Dame beat up on the Hurricanes.

8.  #7 Kansas State Wildcats  vs Kansas Jayhawks

Another game that should be close but college football fans in Kansas always show up for this annual game.

9.  Wisconsin Badgers vs Illinois Fighting Illlini

Both programs are down this year but that won’t stop Illinois fans in the Chicago area from heading up north to Madison.

10.  Cal Golden Bears vs #25 UCLA Bruins

Another in-state rivarly game.  This game is even more interesting as the Bruins are ranked in the top 25 for the first time in a long while.  Cal would like nothing more than to knock them down a peg.

 

College Football Top 10 Games Week 3 (2012)

Michigan State Spartans

The Michigan State Spartans will play host to the #20 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish as our #GOTW.

SUZ4RX3RN2MN The college football season is in full swing as many teams are starting to begin conference play.  The first 3 weeks of the season are traditionally reserved for non-conference games meant to be “tune-ups” for the games that really count and affect conferences standings.  That is not to say powerhouse football programs fill their schedules with cupcake opponents.  Certainly some do but even the cupcakes are capable of pulling off some big time upsets.  Last weekend exemplified this point as the Wisconsin Badgers lost to Oregon State and the Arkansas Razorbacks lost to Louisiana-Monroe!

Conference play is also the time when fans really start to get interested and ticket prices go  up.  This week is chock full of match-ups between both conference and non-conference rivals.  So without any more delay, here are your top 10 games of the week!

Top 10 College Football Games of Week 3

1. #10 Michigan State Spartans vs #20 Notre Dame Fighting Irish

A big battle for supremacy in the midwest!  Both teams have looked impressive thus far.

2. #21 Stanford Cardinal vs #2 USC Trojans

PAC 12 play begins with this stellar matchup between two nationally ranked programs.

3.  #23 Tennessee Vols vs #18 Florida Gators

Tennessee and Florida are back in the national spotlight after several disappointing years.  So far there are 6 SEC teams in the AP Top 25…the loser of this game will likely drop out.

4.  Arkansas Razorbacks vs #1 Alabama Crimson Tide

Arkansas will be looking to right the ship after a big upset lose to LA-Monroe.  It’s not going to be easy against the #1 team in the country.

5.  #12 Ohio State Buckeyes vs Cal Golden Bears

The 12th ranked Buckeyes get a non-conference game against a quality PAC 12 team.

6.   Ole Miss Rebels vs #14 Texas Longhorns

The Longhorns appear back in the bowl picture but will have to face a quality SEC team this week.  An upset is certainly possible especially since the game is in the unfriendly waters of Mississippi.

7.  #5 Florida State Seminoles vs Wake Forest

FSU has a national title in their sights.  However, Florida State has yet to be tested and the 2-0 Demon Deacons could put up more of a fight than expected.

8.  Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs Virginia Cavaliers

There is no love lost between these two ACC rivals.  Neither team is ranked but it should be an exciting game none-the-less.

9.  Northwestern Wildcats vs Boston College

Northwestern is looking for another bowl bid and a non-conference win over an ACC team will certainly solidify their credentials.

10.  Missouri Tigers vs Arizona State Sun Devils

Should be a fun game between the new members of the SEC Missouri Tigers and the ASU Sun Devils.  ASU is 2-0 and Missouri’s only loss came at the hands of the #7 Georgia Bulldogs.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 1 (2012)

Alabama FootballThe 2012 college football season is just days away and there is no shortage of marque match-ups slated for week 1.  The 2012 season will kick off with a nationally televised Thursday night game between the Vanderbilt Commodores and the #9 ranked South Carolina Gamecocks.

While that game is sure to excited SEC fans, the game of the week is the battle between the #2 Alabama  and #8 Michigan – aptly dubbed the Cowboy Classic.  Wolverine fans in Ann Arbor are expecting big things this year.  A big win over a tough Alabama team and Michigan would immediately become a National Championship contender.  The Crimson Tide will need a convincing win to show why they deserve the #1 ranking over USC.

Although all eyes will be on the Cowboy Classic in Arlington Texas, there are a slew of big game on the schedule this week.  Below is our list of the Top 10 games this week.

1. BCS National Championship 1/9/2012

No surprise the highly anticipated rematch between the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide with a National Championship on the line comes in at #1.  This game will feature multiple future NFL players in what is expected to be a great game between two college football power houses

2. Cotton Bowl 1/6/2012

The Cotton Bowl comes in at #2 and is the only other bowl game featuring two top 10 teams in the Arkansas Razorbacks and Kansas State Wildcats.  Ticket demand for this game has been extremely strong with only the BCS Championship outranking it this bowl season.

3. Denver Broncos vs Pittsburgh Steelers AFC Wildcard Game 1/8/2012

The Denver Broncos are in the playoffs for the first time since 2005.  The polarizing Tim Tebow has raised the interest level in Broncos football considerably since taking over the quarterbacking duties.  Not only is the Broncos season on the line but also the future for the Broncos at the QB spot.  A Broncos loss and many speculate that GM John Elway will looking in another direction.

4.  AMA Supercross in Anaheim 1/7/2012

Apparently Supercross is still popular with the Generator X’ers out there.  The event in Anaheim is the AN FIM World Championship- the Super Bowl of Supercross.

5.  Houston Texans vs Cincinnati Bengals AFC Wildcard Game 1/7/2012

The Houston Texans are in the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.  As such fans are excited and actively seeking out tickets.  The only question is who is going to play QB after rookie T.J. Yates went down with a shoulder injury in the season finale.

6.  Boston Bruins vs Vancouver Canucks 1/7/2012

Hockey is always big in Vancouver and when you bring in the defending Stanley Cup Champions back to play against the team they played in the finals you have the makings of an epic rematch.

7.  Indiana Hoosiers vs Michigan Wolverines Basketball 1/5/2012

The legendary IU basketball program is back after taking down #1 Kentucky and #2 Ohio State in recent weeks.  This week they have a hugh Big 10 matchup with the #16 ranked Michigan Wolverines.

8.  New Orleans Saints vs Detroit Lions NFC Wildcard Game  1/7/2012

The Saints have looked impressive of late and will be looking to get back to the Super Bowl following Drew Brees record breaking season.  It all starts with the NFC Wildcard game against the Detroit Lions.

9.  NY Giants vs Atlanta Falcons NFC Wildcard Game 1/8/2012

The Giants squeaked into the NFC playoffs but have a favorable matchup against an unimpressive Atlanta Falcons team.  New York football fans love their Giants and Eli Manning and company could just keep their Super Bowl hopes alive even if just for 1 more week.

10.  Georgia Tech vs Duke Basketball 1/7/2012

College basketball is always pretty big in the Atlanta area.  Since none of the Georgia schools are looking all that good it seems fans are excited to see the the #5 Duke Blue Devils invade Philips Arena
