2010 SEC Football Championship Matchup Set

CamNewton-aubrun-tigers-ticketsHooray!  The best time of the year has arrived.  No, not Turkey Day nor even the Holidays.  The Bowl Championship games are firming up, culminating with the SEC Championship game which was just finalized.   The Auburn Tigers are set to play the South Carolina Gamecocks at the Georgia Dome on December 4th, 2010.

This is shaping up to be an entertaining and competitve game, given all the Cam Newton drama that has been going on.  After Auburn’s win versus Georiga, Newton was mysteriously absent after the game;  no interviews, no comments,no reasoning from the coaches,  no nothing.  That’s not surprising given the controversey over the allegations that his father solicited BIG money during the recruiting process.  Newton is the current Golden Boy at Auburn.  During the 3 hour, 39-minute battle against Georgia, with 299 yards in total offense, Newton was on fire.  He became the first player ever in SEC history to throw 2,000 and rush for 1,000 in a season.  Although Auburn is looking primed to make an appearance in the BCS title game, they will still have to beat the defending National Champion Alabama Crimson tide in the Iron Bowl and beat the Gamecocks in the SEC title game in order to guarantee a spot in the big game.

South Carolina, on the other hand, is fresh off a major beat down of the Florida Gators.  Steve Spurrier was able to best his former team 36-14 in order to qualify for their first SEC Championship game since joining the conference in 1992.  The Gamecocks were 0-12 in Gainesville up until this big win.  Although the South Carolina Gamecocks are just 7-3 (5-3 SEC) they certainly have momentum on their side with big wins over Alabama and Florida on their resume.  They also will not have to deal with the distractions plagued by Auburn.  There is no doubt that head coach Steve Spurrier will have his players well prepared with so much at stake.  A win over Auburn and South Carolina will advance to the Bowl Championship Series.

Auburn will no doubt be heavy favorites in the SEC Football Championship game as they are currently ranked #2 in the Nation.  A win for the Tigers and they will be bound for the BCS title game.  Stay tuned to see how the soap opera unfolds.

College Football Set To Take Center Stage

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and that means college football is on the mind of many sports fans and ticket buyers alike.  For many NCAA teams this upcoming week signals the end of the regular season and the beginning of the bowl and championship season.  After the conclusion of Saturday’s games, the participants in the major conference championships are set and tickets are a hot commodity.

In the SEC, the Florida Gators will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the title game on December 5th at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.  More than the SEC Title is on the line as the winner will likely earn a birth in the BCS Championship game.  Ticket to the SEC Championship are already one of the most search for tickets at Free Ticket Classifieds.

The Big 12 will feature two college football powerhouses in the Texas Longhorns and Nebraska Cornhuskers.  This year the title game will be held on 12/5/2009 at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington Texas.  Longhorn fans are sure to be abundant with the game being played in their home state.  If the Longhorns win they will likely face the winner of the SEC Championship in the BCS National Championship.

For the ACC Championship,  the Clemson Tigers will square off against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on December 5th, 2009.   The game is big as the ACC Champion will go on to the Orange Bowl.

Although the Big 10 does not play a championship game,the Ohio State Buckeyes pulled out a victory over Iowa last Saturday and will head to the Rose Bowl to play the PAC-10 Champion.   The PAC-10 Champion will be decided on December 3rd as the Oregon State Beavers will take on the Oregon Ducks in Eugene.

Tickets for the above mentioned games are already in high demand and will be dominating the ticket market for the next few weeks.  We expect strong traffic and sales for these games that will lead us to selection Sunday.  For those veterans of the secondary ticket market, Selection Sunday is the #1 day for sales for the entire year as frenzied college football fans are ready to make holiday travel plans to watch their favorite team shoot for a National title.
