Penn State at Ohio State is College Football’s 10th-Most In-Demand Ticket

Good news, Terry Pegula and Mark Parker — you can watch your alma mater’s week seven matchup with Ohio State in person. To the rest of us, it’s bad news — Penn State’s showdown in Columbus lays claim to the 10th-priciest median in all of college football next year.

Vivid Seats calculated the priciest and most in-demand tickets for the upcoming season, and Penn State’s visit to the Horseshoe is up there with some of the nation’s biggest rivalry games. With a median price of $312 and a “get-in” price of $145, it’s a good thing in-state tuition is seeing its lowest increase in half a century.

At the very least, the game’s atmosphere should electric, and should provide one of the rowdiest scenes in all of college football. As we covered in our podcast, Penn State has a great chance of being 6-0 entering the game thanks to a weak early schedule. Ohio State, of course, is the reigning National Champion, and it’d be a shock if the Buckeyes weren’t undefeated entering the game as well. The potential for two undefeated teams meeting up in a rematch of last year’s controversial double-overtime decision is everything you could ever ask for in a marquee regular season matchup (Paging our good friend Kirk Herbstreit and his College GameDay crew).

Penn State-Ohio State is the second-priciest Big Ten matchup after Michigan State’s trip to Columbus. Michigan State and Michigan each appear in the Top-25 twice, while Ohio State is listed four times. Notre Dame home games occupy the list’s top two spots, while Alabama owns Nos. 3, 4, and 5.
