Ohio State at Penn State is College Football’s Priciest Ticket
With an average price of $166, tickets for Saturday’s Whiteout on national TV are the most expensive in college football this week. Per the below data from Ticket City, the average price of $166 tops the list, while tickets for Michigan at Michigan State, Ole Miss at LSU, Alabama at Tennessee, and South Carolina at Auburn round out the top five.
The prices are taken from the secondary market, which means the cost is decided on (and in this case, driven up) by consumers. Penn State cracked the top five two other times this season, when it played at Rutgers (average price of $140) and at Michigan ($120). A quick check of ticket aggregator Seat Geek shows that this chart is spot-on — as of early Friday morning, the cheapest tickets were 88th-row seats at $131 a pop.
Penn State announced that the Ohio State game was sold out weeks ago. It’s part of a solid upswing in Penn State attendance this season, as tomorrow’s contest will be the second sellout of four home games thus far. Regardless of how the game goes, this will be a crowd that definitely wants to be there.
