1D Holds off Surging College Bowl Games – Tickifieds Top 10

texas A&M vs OklahomaThis week, seven out of the 10 most searched for tickets on ended up being college football bowl games.   You can’t say we didn’t warn you!  As we mentioned in last week’s post, each year we typically see a huge surge in interest for college football bowl games immediately following ‘Selection Sunday’.  This year proved to be no different as interested in bowl games was both deep and widespread.

However, even the strength of college football was not enough to knock One Direction out of the top spot.  Taylor Swift held her own as well dropping just 1 spot this week.  Check out the full list below to see how this week’s top 10 turned out.

Top 10 Weekly Event Ticket Searches (11/30 – 12/5/2012)

1.  One Direction

What else is there to say about 1 Direction?  Maybe if we stop talking about 1D they will just go away…

2.  Cotton Bowl

A bit of a surprise here as the most popular college football bowl isn’t even a BCS game.  Nonetheless, the Cotton Bowl is getting a lot of attention as rivals Texas A&M and Oklahoma will meet.  It doesn’t get much better than this!

3.  Taylor Swift

Demand for Taylor Swift concert tickets remains strong heading into holiday season.  On sales for her 2013 Red Tour continue this week with shows in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Winnipeg, and Nashville officially being released to the public.

4.  BCS Championship

No surprise here as fan favorite Notre Dame will be looking for their first National Championship in nearly 25 years  against an Alabama Crimson Tide squad looking for their 3rd in 4 years.  Ticket demand is extremely high for these two storied football programs.

5.  Merry Meltdown

Fans of alternative rock are excited for the 2012 Merry Meltdown.  The event is scheduled for 12/16/2012 at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, CA and will feature P.O.D., Switchfoot & Anberlin.

6.  Rose Bowl

It doesn’t matter who plays in the Rose Bowl, fans will always be lining up for tickets .  This year the Stanford Cardinals will face the Wisconsin Badgers

7.  Fiesta Bowl

Of all the BCS Bowl games the Fiesta Bowl probably has the best matchup outside of the Championship game:  Oregon Ducks vs Kansas State Wildcats.  Had the season ended a little differently, this could have been the BCS Championship game matchup!

8.  Capital One Bowl

Wow…Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Georgia Bulldogs.  You’d think these two major football programs would be playing in a BCS game.  Nope…it’s the Captial One Bowl!

9.  Chick-fil-A Bowl

The Chick-Fil-A Bowl committee must be pleased to have landed the LSU Tigers and Clemson Tigers this year.  The Georgia Dome will certainly be rocking for this game!

10.  Outback Bowl

Last but not least, we have the Outback Bowl.  Interest should remain high for this game between 2 dominant football programs once thought to have a chance at a BCS game.

This top 10 list is compiled from internal search data from and organic traffic from search engines.  Search terms are ranked by using a combination of both sources of search data.
