The Most Valued Tickets in College Football

The folks at TickPick sent me this information on the latest pricing of football tickets in the secondary markets.


Once again -- Notre Dame football is part of the MOST VALUED TICKET in college football this year -- and it's not even close...

To put this in perspective:
  • You could buy a ticket to Florida State vs. Alabama and Michigan vs. Ohio State and still not spend what it would cost to buy a ticket to Georgia vs. Notre Dame.
  • You could buy a ticket to Alabama vs. Auburn, Michigan State vs. Michigan and Clemson vs. Auburn -- and still not spend what it would cost to buy a ticket to Georgia vs. Notre Dame
  • You could buy TWO tickets to Ohio State vs. Michigan, and ONE ticket to Michigan State vs. Michigan -- and still not spend what it would cost to buy a ticket to Georgia vs. Notre Dame

THE TEN MOST VALUED TICKETS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL:
  1. Georgia at Notre Dame:  $1,654.72
  2. Florida State at Alabama:  $1,026.54
  3. Ohio State at Michigan:  $599.63
  4. Navy vs. Army:  $567.76
  5. Florida at Georgia:  $532.68
  6. USC at Notre Dame:  $521.57
  7. Oklahoma at Texas:  $469.38
  8. Alabama at Auburn:  $464.63
  9. Michigan State at Michigan:  $424.73

New Tunnel Signage for Notre Dame Football


I'm hoping this new "HERE COME THE IRISH" signage is "back lit" and lights up during night games.

That would be a nice addition.
