Bama/A&M: The Most Expensive Regular Season College Football Game Ever?

tickets According to Forbes Magazine, Saturday’s showdown between Alabama and Texas A&M is the most expensive regular season college football game in history.  Checking a website that brokers tickets, Forbes found that tickets for this weekend’s game are pricier than the Alabama/LSU contest in 2011:

 

“On TiqIQ.com, tickets to see Johnny Football try and revisit his role of David to Alabama’s Goliath are selling for an average of $763 on the secondary ticket market — $50 more than the Game of the Century (between Alabama and LSU).”

 

ESPN’s Darren Rovell astutely pointed out that there’s a bit of a difference between listing tickets for a price and finding buyers of tickets for that price:

A quick check of StubHub.com reveals that a number of tickets are listed between $3,000 and $5,000.  Proving Rovell’s point, however, is the fact that one person has listed tickets for sale for the whopping price of $9,999.00.

Amusingly, another ambitious seller has priced his mezzanine level seats at $999,999.00 per seat.  Hey, when you gotta see a game you gotta see a game.
