It’s Wednesday and that means it is time to take a look at the most popular events going on across the country this weekend. With college football on a hiatus until the bowl games begin next week, NFL football is back to dominating the search results at Tickifieds.com. Coming in at number 1 on the list is Tim Tebow’s Denver Broncos vs Tom Brady’s New England Patriots. The ever polarizing Tim Tebow is 7-1 as a starter after he led yet another last minute comeback against the Chicago Bears. The Broncos now have a 2 game lead over the Oakland Raiders (Denver owns the tie-breaker) in the AFC. It seems as though Mr. Tebow has turned both fans and Bronco management into believers and ticket prices have absolutely sky-rocketed the past couple of weeks.
Coming in at #2 this week is the Monday Night matchup between two 10-3 teams, the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers. OK, so this game isn’t actually taking place this weekend but we thought it was important enough to include on this list as this game is shaping up to be a great one. At #3, the 0-13 Indianapolis Colts will be looking to pick up their first win of the season against the Tennessee Titans. While this game doesn’t sound all that exciting fans are gobbling up these very affordable tickets (under $15 a ticket).
The other NFL games on the list also have some nice story-lines generating heavy fan interest. In Oakland, the Raiders and Lions will face off both badly needing a win to stay in the playoff hunt. In Kansas City, the 13-0 Green Bay Packers will be looking to stay undefeated after their last road game of the year. Lastly, the 7-6 Chicago Bears will be looking to keep their playoff hopes alive against the Seattle Seahawks. However, fan interest in this game is likely due to a substantial drop in ticket prices following the loss of both Jay Cutler and Matt Forte.
Making the list at #6 is our first college basketball game: NC State vs the #1 Syracuse Orange. College basketball is king in North Carolina so it’s not much of a surprise that the #1 team in the nation coming to Raleigh is driving ticket demand. As the conference play starts up expect college basketball tickets to frequently make the list of top events.
Pulling up the rear are a few non-sports events. The Radio City Christmas Spectacular makes the list for the 3rd week in a row with their sold out show in Nashville, Trans-siberian Orchestra’s Christmas performance in Tulsa on Friday night comes in at #9, while Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s critically acclaimed “The Book of Mormon” slides in at #10.
