The 20 Most Expensive College Football Games Left In The 2014 Season

If there is one thing we know about attending major college football games, it's that a seat inside the stadium isn't going to come cheap. But for hardcore fans, it can truly be worth every penny - especially if their team wins. We're only two weeks into the 2014 college football season and we've already seen some marquee clashes take place around the country. But starting soon, conference games are going to become a weekly occurrence.

There are many huge contests left to be played this year and if you're planning to catch one live at some point, this is some information that you may find useful. Before you book your plane ticket, make sure you check out the 20 priciest games to attend - yours could be on here.

The list is based on the lowest-priced ticket you can buy to get in the door. You won't be surprised by No. 1, or will you?

Get Started: No. 20-16 >>>

20. South Carolina vs Clemson

Cheapest Seats: $137

Where: Memorial Stadium

When: Nov. 29th

These two bitter rivals are meeting in the final week of the season and both already have a loss, each sporting a 1-1 record. No matter what their records are at the end of the season, you can bet this game will mean the most for both of them.

If South Carolina can march into Death Valley and come away with a win, it will go a long way bolstering its bowl resume - but the same goes for Clemson if it can hold its ground. This battle for the state of South Carolina is always fun to watch.

19. Oregon vs Oregon State

Cheapest Seats: $141

Where: Reser Stadium

When: November 29th

In Oregon's final game of the season, the Ducks will be traveling to their most-hated rival's stadium, possibly with a Pac-12 division title on the line. After dismantling Michigan State in the second half last week, Oregon appears to be one of the top squads in the nation.

The "Civil War" is always a tough game, regardless of record. Plus, Oregon State may be playing to ruin the Ducks' season.

18. USC vs UCLA

Cheapest Seats: $144

Where: Rose Bowl

When: Nov. 22nd

Both teams appear to be improved from a year ago and this game could very well decide the Pac-12 South Championship. In the Bruins' second contest, they showed their ability to score the ball. That being said, they still have some questions to answer on defense.

The Trojans have looked impressive so far, particularly when they traveled to Stanford and pulled out a gritty win. This game isn't just huge for these two programs, but for the entire city of Los Angeles.

17. LSU vs Auburn

Cheapest Seats: $149

Where: Jordan-Hare Stadium

When: Oct. 4th 

Auburn seems to be every bit as lethal in 2014 as it was a year ago. LSU pulled off a fantastic second half comeback against the Wisconsin Badgers in the season opener, scoring 24 unanswered points.

Les Miles' squad will only improve from here on out and it looks very possible that both teams will be undefeated at the time of this game. The winner will be thinking it has the inside track to the SEC Conference Championship Game.

16. North Carolina vs Notre Dame

Cheapest Seats: $150

Where: Notre Dame Stadium

When: Oct. 11th

The Tar Heels seem to be improved from a year ago, when they finished 7-6, and may surprise some people when they travel to face Notre Dame next month. But the Irish seem to be up to the challenge after absolutely dominating Michigan 31-0 in week two.

North Carolina will be looking to steal a huge non-conference road win in one of the hardest places to play in all of college football. It should be a fun one to watch.

Next: Expensive Games No. 15-11 >>>

15. Ohio State vs Penn State

Cheapest Seats: $151

Where: Beaver Stadium

When: Oct. 25th

On the heels of the NCAA's announcement that Penn State is eligible for postseason play this year, this game's significance grew mightily. These are two of the Big Ten East's top three teams and the winner will have a great shot at traveling to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Conference Championship Game.

It is going to be a nationally televised night game and it is one of the marquee matches of the entire Big Ten season.

14. Stanford vs Notre Dame

Cheapest Seats: $153

Where: Notre Dame Stadium

When: Oct. 4th

Stanford will be quite motivated when it travels to South Bend to take on the Fighting Irish after dropping a tough contest in overtime two years ago. Per usual, it should be a game dominated by defense.

At the moment, Notre Dame looks like it could be in for a special season. Stanford, on the other hand, will have to rebound after dropping a big Pac-12 game to USC. We can't wait to see how this one shakes out.

13. Oklahoma State vs Oklahoma

Cheapest Seats: $156

Where: Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium

When: Dec. 6th

The Cowboys and Sooners first met in 1904 and have played 108 games on the gridiron. Somehow, Oklahoma holds the advantage with a record of 84-17-7 - it's been that lopsided of a series.

Given Oklahoma's title aspirations, Oklahoma State could have a chance to play spoiler against it's rival.

12. Texas vs Oklahoma

Cheapest Seats: $158 

Where: Cotton Bowl Stadium (Neutral Site)

When: Oct. 11th

No matter the circumstance, the Red River Rivalry game is always a big deal. The Sooners will be heavily favored against a Texas squad that was just beat 41-7 by BYU.

But if there is one game that the Longhorns could get up for and play above their talent, you can guarantee that it'll be against Oklahoma in Dallas. They did a year ago as they upset the heavily favored Sooners, 36-20 . 

11. Alabama vs Ole Miss

Cheapest Seats: $165

Where: Vaught-Hemingway Stadium 

When: Oct. 4th

This will be the first ranked opponent that both teams play and you can bet it'll be one heck of a clash. Expect the Ole Miss faithful to give the traveling Crimson Tide players hell as the Rebels' chance at an SEC Championship will be all but dashed with a loss.

This is the first of many colossal SEC West matchups for both teams and each will desperately need the win.

Next: Expensive Games No. 10-6 >>>

10. Kansas vs Baylor

Cheapest Seats: $169

Where: McLane Stadium

When: Nov. 1st

This one is a little confusing, but here's a little bit of reasoning. Baylor opened a brand new stadium this year, and the game against Kansas is the official homecoming date. Otherwise, it's fair to say that the Jayhawks would never be the biggest Big 12 draw.

The Bears possess a lethal offense, boast a Heisman candidate quarterback (Bryce Petty) and have only allowed three points in two contests this year. Baylor has its eyes on the inaugural College Football Playoff, but if Kansas can come up with the upset it will be a monumental win for the Jayhawks' program.

8. (TIE) Notre Dame vs Florida State

Cheapest Seats: $172

Where: Doak Campbell Stadium

When: Oct. 18th

The defending champions are hosting the Fighting Irish for what is sure to be one of the more interesting matchups of the year.

At this point, it would appear that Notre Dame has the best chance of any team at keeping the Seminoles from posting an undefeated season. Jameis Winston probably has other plans, though.

8. (TIE) Michigan vs Michigan State

Cheapest Seats: $172 

Where: Spartan Stadium

When: Oct. 25th

Michigan football is still seemingly in rebuild mode, whereas the Spartans look to be the more polished, hard-nosed team. Sparty will be heavily favored as Michigan has to travel to East Lansing.

But the Wolverines do possess a lot of talent and in this rivalry game you can throw out the rankings. Michigan will be looking to keep MSU out of conference championship contention and the Spartans will be looking to beat Michigan for the sixth time in seven years.

7. Texas A&M vs Alabama

Cheapest Seats: $175

Where: Bryant-Denny Stadium

When: Oct. 18th

Johnny Football is gone, but the budding rivalry between the Aggies and the Crimson Tide should still provide some fireworks. If both teams are undefeated, it will be billed as one of the games of the year and will go a long way in deciding which team will represent the SEC West division in the SEC Championship Game.

Both squads are currently in the top ten and both need this win to further their case to be invited the first ever College Football Playoff.

6. Florida vs Georgia

Cheapest Seats: $188

Where: EverBank Field (Neutral Site)

When: Nov. 1st

The Gators appear to be much improved from a year ago, but they still won't be given much of a chance against Georgia - at least by the media.

Fans attending this affair won't just get to see a potentially great game - they'll get to tailgate in one of the most impressive atmospheres in the country.

Next: Expensive Games No. 5-1 >>>

5. LSU vs Texas A&M

Cheapest Seats: $198

Where: Kyle Field

When: Nov. 27th

This game has the potential to be the most exciting game in the SEC this year, as it's the final regular season contest for both of these teams and will be broadcast by ESPN on a Thursday night.

If both teams are undefeated (which would be quite an amazing feat) the winner would most likely be headed straight to the SEC Championship Game. LSU has beaten Texas A&M in both contests since the Aggies joined the SEC. You can bet A&M is looking for some revenge in 2014.

4. Auburn vs Georgia

Cheapest Seats: $200

Where: Sanford Stadium

When: Nov. 15th

Both of these squads are currently ranked in the top six of the AP Poll and both have the potential to win their respective divisions of the SEC.

At the moment, the Bulldogs look utterly unbeatable behind Todd Gurley's ground assault, but Auburn isn't intimidated by anyone. This has the potential to be one of the most exciting games to watch in 2014.

3. Michigan vs Ohio State

Cheapest Seats: $226

Where: Ohio Stadium

When: Nov. 29th

This year's version of "The Game" lacks the luster and anticipation that it usually carries at this time of the year, since both teams are 1-1 on the season.

But, by the time the game rolls around it, things could certainly change. This is as fierce as a rivalry can get in sports, and both programs will want to win this one regardless of how things have played out the rest of the season. 

2. Alabama vs LSU

Cheapest Seats: $288

Where: Tiger Stadium

When: Nov. 8th

These two teams have been the flagship programs for the SEC over the last ten years and their rivalry continuously reaches new heights. Look for LSU to do everything it can to exact some revenge on the Crimson Tide, who have come out victorious the last three times the teams have played.

Depending on how the rest of the season goes, the winner of this game may be in the driver's seat headed to the SEC Championship Game.

1. Auburn vs Alabama

Cheapest Seats: $309

Where: Bryant-Denny Stadium

When: Nov. 29th

The cheapest ticket is $309 and they could probably charge twice that and the stadium would still sell out, after last year's Iron Bowl for the ages. The 2013 edition of this rivalry game was one of the greatest college football games of all-time and the hype leading up to this year's contest will be insane.

It may be the most-watched game in the history of college football, assuming both teams are still in the running for the SEC title.
