Priciest ticket this weekend? One guess ...

10/30/2012

No surprise, but the LSU-Alabama game is the hottest ticket in college football.

The average resale price for a ticket to Saturday's game pitting the nation's top-ranked Crimson Tide and the No. 5 Tigers is $752, according to TicketsNow. That's more than double the price of the second most coveted game, the Oregon at USC game (average price: $310).

This is of no surprise. LSU fans who have looked to sell their tickets have been asking for those kinds of prices since the summer. Some fans looked to sell their season tickets, except for the Alabama game.

It's a rematch of last year's BCS national championship game, won 21-0 by Alabama. LSU had won 9-6 in overtime in the regular season. Both of those games were matchups of the top two teams in the country.

The Tigers' loss in Gainesville is the only loss by either team to an opponent other than each other in the last two seasons.
