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.

 

College Football Top 10 Games Week 5 (2012)

WVU Football

The #9 West Virginia Mountaineers will face a tough test this week against the #25 Baylor Bears.

After another weekend filled with some incredible college football action, it’s time to take a look ahead and see what is on the schedule for Week 5. With over a 100+ college football games on the schedule each week, it can be a difficult task determining which games warrant both your attention as a fan, and as a marketer of event tickets.  That is why each week we bring you our list of our top 10 college football games- so you can laser focus your attention on only the games that  matter.

Although the season is still relatively young, we still have many undefeated teams jockeying for position in the top 25.  Our game of the week is no exception as two undefeated Big 12 teams will be looking to move up the ranks with a big win over a conference foe.  This game is even more important as neither team has really been tested.  The winner will likely secure their spot in the top 10, the loser will fall back to the pack.  There is no doubt that Mountaineers fans are anixously awaiting Saturday to prove to the rest of the Nation that WVU belongs in the Big 12 and is deserving of their #9 rank.

 College Football Top 10 Games Week 5 (2012)

1.  #9 West Virginia Mountaineers (3-0) vs #25 Baylor Bears (3-0)

The Big 12 is shaping up to be a heck of a conference this year.  Two of the 7 undefeated Big 12 teams will go head to head this week in our Week 5 game of the week.   Fan interest is BIG in this game as both teams will be looking to prove that they are for real.

2.  #14 Ohio State Buckeyes (4-0) vs #20 Michigan State Spartans (3-1)

Ohio State has looked a little shaky thus far but it’s hard to argue with 4-0.  MSU on the other hand was expected to have a big year but lost to Notre Dame.  If Notre Dame turns of to be the real deal than Michigan State could get back into the BCS Bowl game picture if they can beat OSU.

3.  Oklahoma State Cowboys (2-1) vs #12 Texas Longhorns (3-0)

The Texas Longhorns are on the cusp of returning to national prominence.  However, there is nothing more the OK State Cowboys would like to do than to deflate UT’s chance at a BCS Bowl.

4.  #22 Nebraska Cornhuskers (3-1) vs Wisconsin Badgers (3-1)

Two of the Big 10’s best will go head to head in Lincoln this weekend.  Both teams are off to slows starts (relatively speaking) and need a win over a quality opponent.

5.  Tennessee Volunteers (3-1) vs #5 Georgia Bulldogs (4-0)

The surprising Tennessee Volunteers will have a chance to get in the national spotlight with a game against the top 5 Georgia Bulldogs.  There only loss came at the hands of #18 Florida.

6.  #1 Alabama Crimson Tide (4-0) vs Ole Miss Rebels (3-1)

The top ranked Crimson Tide will face a tough Ole Miss squad in Tuscaloosa.  If Bama doesn’t take this game seriously, there could be a major upset…

7.  Washington Huskies (2-1) vs #8 Stanford Cardinal (3-0)

The Washington Huskies will face a tough test against one of the best teams in the PAC 12, if not the nation in Stanford.  Seattle will be rocking for this game!

8.  Miami Hurricanes (3-1) vs NC State Wolf Pack (3-1)

Two of the better teams in the ACC will go head to head this week in Miami.  A win for the home Hurricanes will ensure the lead in the ACC Coastal Division.

9.  Virginia Cavaliers (2-2) vs Louisana Tech Bulldogs (3-0)

Louisiana Tech will look to put up another win against a solid team from a solid conference. LA Tech beat up on the Big 10’s Illinois putting up an impressive 52 points.  In fact LA Tech has score over 50 in every game so far.  A win over Virginia and the Bulldogs might crack the top 25!

10.  Iowa State Cyclones (3-0) vs Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-0)

These may not be two of the more storied football programs in the Big 12 but both teams are sitting at 3-0.  Should be a great game for some hillside seats!

Top Weekend Events 12/2/2011-12/4/2011

Sec Championship Football GameWell, it’s that time of the week where we take a look at the hottest events happening this weekend.  No big surprise this week is dominated by college football once again as this week is “Championship Week”.  The hottest ticket this week is the SEC Football Championship game where undefeated LSU will play against the Georgia Bulldogs.  A win for LSU and they are a lock to get the opportunity to play in the BCS National Championship Game at the Super Dome in New Orleans.

Coming in at #2 is the PAC 12 Championship Game where the Oregon Ducks will face the surprising UCLA Bruins.  The Ducks should easily handle the Bruins and still have an outside shot at facing LSU in the National Championship game.  Coming in at #3 and #4 respectively are the Big 10 and ACC Championship games.  While the teams involved in these games won’t have a shot at a national title they are playing for position in BCS Bowl games.  The Badgers are Spartans are hoping for a chance to play at the Rose Bowl while Clemson and Virginia Tech are competing for a lot in the Orange Bowl.

The big rivalry game between the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys also made the list (#7).  This game means a lot to both teams as the winner will likely get the nod for the Fiesta Bowl.

Also appearing on the list for the first time are Andrea Bocelli and Cesar Millan.  Bocelli is a popular Italian tenor, instrumentalist, and classical cross-over artist who concerts are always popular around the holiday season.  Cesar Millan is know as the dog whisperer.  We aren’t sure why he appears on this list but apparently many folks in Providence Rhode Island have dogs with behavioral issues.

Rounding out the top 10 we have 3 NFL Football games.  At #8 the undefeated Green Bay Packers will head to the New Meadowlands Stadium and face a resurgent NY Giants squad.   With both teams fighting for a playoff spot, the Washington Redskins and NY Jets comes in at #9.  Last, but not least, we have the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens.   This game is always much anticipated after the old Browns franchise relocated to Baltimore and became the Ravens.  The “Dawg Pound” surely has not forgot nor forgiven them.

Top 10 Hottest College Football Tickets (Week 13)

arkanas vs LSU footballWhat a wild ride this college football season has been. Just when you think the stars are aligned for the National Championship game, a big upset puts everything back into question. This week we saw Oklahoma State get stunned by little old Iowa State. With the loss, the OK State Cowboys drop to #5 in the nation would need some major breaks to get back into the BCS picture.  The loss also hurts the Oklahoma Sooners chances as a win over an undefeated OK State team would have pretty much guaranteed them a #2 ranking.

The Iowa State upset did help out 2 SEC teams vying to get another shot at LSU.  The Alabama Crimson Tide move back up to #2 in the nation- if they can win out the would pretty much be assured a rematch with LSU.  Their game against the Auburn Tigers this weekend will certainly mean a lot.  The Arkansas Razorbacks also got a rankings boost and now sit at #3.  In our game of the week they get their shot at the unanimous #1 team in the nation.  If they can pull off the upset who knows how the BCS Bowl games will play out.

Another game gathering quite a bit of interest is the Houston Cougars vs Tulsa Golden Hurricanes.  The 11-0 Houston Cougars are sitting at #8 in the nation and are looking to make a case for a birth in a BCS Bowl game.  A win over a pretty good Tulsa team would certainly help make that case.  Tulsa is 8-3 and has only lost to Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Boise State.

So now that we thoroughly confused you, let’s take a look at the top college football games this weekend.  This week we have a some pretty good match-ups that will likely have a large impact on the rankings.  Again, these rankings are determined by a formula that utilizes page view and search query data from Tickifieds.com and average ticket price from major ticket brokers.

Top 10 Hottest College Football Tickets

1. Arkansas at LSU
2. Alabama at Auburn
3. Virginia Tech at Virginia
4. Notre Dame at Stanford
5. Penn State at Wisconsin
6. Houston at Tulsa
7. Clemson at South Carolina
8. Georgia at Georgia Tech
9. Ohio State at Michigan
10. Oregon State at Oregon

BCS Championship Race Heats Up!

Oklahoma State BCS Title RunFollowing the “Game of the Century” on Saturday night between the top ranked LSU Tigers and the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide, the BCS Championship picture is becoming a little more clear.  LSU has 3 games remaining on their regular season schedule and will face Western Kentucky, Ole Miss, and the 8th ranked Arkansas Razorbacks.  If they can get by the Razorbacks they are almost guaranteed a trip to New Orleans for the BCS National Championship Game as the SEC Championship would be against a relatively weak team from the SEC East (Likely Georgia or South Carolina).

Assuming LSU wins out, the next big question is who will they play for the national title?  Four other college football teams remain undefeated:  #2 Oklahoma State,  #3 Stanford, #5 Boise State, and #9 Houston.  Although the Houston Cougars have one of the best offenses in college football, their strength of schedule pretty much guarantees that they will not have a shot at a national championship.  That leaves 3 teams will a viable chances to face LSU at the Superdome.

Oklahoma State Cowboys Football Schedule 

The Oklahoma State Cowboys should have no problem taking care of Texas Tech and Iowa State even though those games are on the road.  However, the Bedlam Game against #7 Oklahoma Sooners certainly could foil their BCS Hopes.  That said, OK State is in the best shape to stay undefeated and face LSU for the title.
