    You can purchase 3 tickets for all BCS bowls for less than one ticket for UA/ND

    Recent Stubhub prices

    Orange Bowl. $14.99
    Sugar Bowl. $36.00
    Fiesta Bowl. $130.00
    Rose Bowl. $140.00

    BCS Championship. $1200. (standing room)

    The current format has really reduced the appeal of the traditional bowl games.

    That's crazy. The Michigan/Bama game at the beginning of the season was around $350.

    The cheap tickets are in club LIV.Not sure it's the kind of setting I want to watch a Championship calibre football game in.They are not going to get any cheaper either.

    Finally broke down Thursday and got two tickets in the upper deck 20-yardline-ish with parking and Fans Zone tickets for $3100 (for both tickets ). Since then watched prices go up daily. It grinds my gears to have to pay that kind of cash, but this my be one for the history books.

    I know the Orange has a stinko matchup, but does the bowl hosting the BCSCG usually suffer in its regular game as far as ticket sales and prices go?

    Wow! I paid $14 for a student ticket to the Sugar Bowl when I was a sophomore way back in 19.....never mind. Okay, I have children older than I was then.

    Here's my recent purchases...Pasadena $700(great seats), New Orleans $1175(upper deck at the 20), SECCG $350(luxury suite), Giants-Pats I $1500(upper deck corner of the end zone WAY UP), Giants-Pats II $1900(great seats)- I refuse to pay more for this than those Super Bowls. At the college events I waited till I got to the stadium and scalped and didn't give in as tix were a lot more money on the web the weeks leading up to it. Just the opposite for the Super Bowls. I bought before I left and by game time tickets were almost at face value and I was annoyed with myself. My point is that I will take my chances with cash the day of the game.

    Normally I would expect you to be able to get away with that. However, the two of the best fan bases with numbers of followers willing to pay big money to go to the game this year may make that difficult. Yes the price is forcing a lot of pause and anger out of those that can't afford (or will not pay). I am not sure we have seen the demand grow more since bowl games started being a real factor.

    I would go so far as to say that you could purchase tickets to all 4 BCS bowls AND the plane tickets to get there for less then the price of those championship game tickets.

    $14.99 for the Orange? They've gone up. I think I remember seeing some for $6 last week.

    The $6 ones were probably standing room only.

    I think the prices online are keeping a lot of people away. People thatlast year went to New Orleans anyway because the drive was short. I spoke to my uncle's friend who has been a ticket broker for 40 years and his exact words were, " Don't panic, prices are crazy right now but they will come down the Saturday before the game"...for what it's worth

    NJ, I think your uncle's friend was right. They have dropped from $1600 down to $1125 over the past 36 hours on stub hub. Apparently BAMA and ND alumni have finally received tickets or at least seat locations. When I looked yesterday AM 7800 tix were available, just now 9500. A bunch of sections were "white" (ones allocated to UA&ND) showing no tix yesterday morning, right now every section has tickets available.

    A ticket broker I know told me a minimum 25K tickets are for sale on ebay/stub hub/ticket city etc. He quit buying the day after the SEC Title game and he continues to get 10-15 calls selling for every call buying. When I told him I bought one last night for $1468 including all fees, shipping, etc, his response was "you coulda bought the same seat for $850-$900 within a week". I know I could of had the same section and 1 row closer for $200 cheaper I waited 24 hours. Dang it....
