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 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.

 

2012 Pre-season College Football Rankings

2012 College Football RankingsJune is typically one of the slowest months of the year for ticket sales.  Sure the summer concert season is just starting to heat up but demand is waning for sports tickets.  This is largely due to the fact that the NBA and NHL playoffs are winding down and MLB baseball is only a hot ticket later in the season when the pennant chase really heats up.  The real ticket frenzy starts in the fall as both NCAA and NFL football tickets begin to go on sale.

With the college football season just a little over two months away, it’s never to early to start marketing football tickets.  In today’s blog post we have prepared a list of the some of the top teams in the nation heading into the 2012-13 college football season.  These are the teams that are expected to compete for a national championship and thus should garner their fair share of attention come time to sell tickets.

2012 Pre-season Top 10 College Football Team

1.  LSU Tigers

The LSU Tigers finished off an impressive 2011 campaign losing in the BCS Championship game to the SEC rival Alabama Crimson Tide.  Although the Tigers lost of ton of talent to the NFL draft, another bumper crop of recruits should fill in all the holes.  The addition of a JUCO transfer QB, the Tigers should have a more balanced offensive attack that was lacking in the Championship game.  A rather easy non-conference schedule should set up another matchup with Bama in the SEC title game.

2.  Alabama Crimson Tide

Like LSU, last year’s national champions got pillaged in the NFL draft.  Head Coach Nick Saban will have to completely rebuild the defense so some bumps are expected down the road.  However, they have plenty of talent and depth waiting to fill the void.  Should be neck and neck with LSU.

3.  USC Trojans

The USC Trojans finished last year with an impressive 10-2 record and should be even better this year with 19 starters returning.  All eyes will be on QB Matt Barkley as an undefeated season is not out of the question with the only tough games being against Stanford and Oregon.

4.  Oregon Ducks

The Oregon Ducks have a lot of questions marks but they are depth and talented.  The big questions will be can tailbacks Kenjon Barner and De’Anthony Thomas effectively replace LaMichael James.  Will Bryan Bennett and Marcus Mariota or emerge as a legitmate QB?  If so the Ducks could be right in the mix for a shot at a national title.

5.  Georgia Bulldogs

Georgia is certainly an upcoming team with plenty of questions but they have a stellar defense and a cake of a schedule.  Even though they play in the tough SEC they will not have to face Alabama, LSU, Arkansas, or Texas A&M.

6.  Oklahoma Sooners

The Sooners are clearly the class of the Big 12.  The addition of TCU and West Virginia should help compensate for the loss of Texas A&M and a down Texas Longhorns program.

7.  West Virginia Mountaineers

WVU made a bold move by heading to the Big 12 and it could benefit them greatly to be in a league where offenses tend to prevail.  The Mountaineers offense should thrive as they are returning star QB Geno Smith and wideouts Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin.

8. Florida State Seminoles

Many were high on FSU coming into last season but injuries contributed to another disappointing season.  If Florida State can stay healthy and the defense improves, they should be right in the mix for a BCS Bowl game.

9.  Michigan Wolverines

The Wolverines are one of the most exciting teams to watch in all of college football.  QB Denard Robinson will be back with 13 starters and are the favorites to emerge from the Big

10. South Carolina Gamecocks

Head coach Steve Spurrier has really turned around the South Carolina football program quickly.  After winning a SEC East title in 2010 and producing 11 wins last year, what is next?  A SEC title!  It may be a little too early for them to take out LSU and Alabama but don’t put anything past the Gamecocks.

Other teams to watch for:  Michigan State, Stanford, Arkansas, TCU, and Wisconsin
