Poll shakeups will rule during Week 5 of the 2015 college football season as 10 Top 25 schools face off in the top-priced games of the week. Holding their first meeting since 2012, Alabama and Georgia square off in Athens as this week’s most expensive game on Saturday. Notre Dame and Clemson battle in South Carolina and will be followed in ticket price by Mississippi State and Texas A&M. Rounding off this week’s top games list are matchups between Ole Miss and Florida and West Virginia and Oklahoma.

Below is a comprehensive look at Week 5’s top games, according to TiqIQ:

No. 13 Alabama at No. 8 Georgia | Avg. Price: $453.37 | Get-in: $245

It has been eight long years since Georgia last defeated Alabama, and the two teams will clash for the first time since 2012 this Saturday in Athens. Georgia vs Alabama tickets on TiqIQ now average $453.37 and the cheapest ticket available is listed for $245 on the secondary market. Growing concern exists around the dominance of the Crimson Tide, who dropped an early-season loss to Ole Miss and enter Saturday’s game as the underdog for the first time since 2009’s SEC Championship against Florida. The Bulldogs will be looking to take advantage of Alabama’s recent hiccup, but expect the Crimson Tide to showcase why they are considered one of CFB’s elite teams.

No. 6 Notre Dame at No. 12 Clemson | Avg. Price: $348.30 | Get-in: $176

In a battle of unbeaten teams, one will fall when Clemson hosts Notre Dame at Memorial Stadium Saturday night. The average secondary market price for Clemson vs Notre Dame tickets is currently $348.30 and the get-in price is $176. The two schools have faced each other just twice all-time and split wins in 1977 and 1979. Clemson will likely serve as Notre Dame’s most formidable opponent yet after facing a barrage of unimpressive teams over the season’s first four weeks. Redshirt freshman DeShone Kizer will make his second start under center for the Fighting Irish.

No. 20 Mississippi State at No. 14 Texas A&M | Avg. Price: $195.90 | Get-in: $76

With momentum returning to Mississippi State after seminal wins against Northwestern State and Auburn, this Saturday’s matchup with Texas A&M will hope to prove that the team’s Week 2 loss to LSU was nothing more than a fluke. Texas A&M vs Mississippi State tickets average $195.90 on the secondary market and get-in price is $76. It will be a difficult matchup for the Bulldogs, however, as the Aggies possess a flawless 4-0 record and battled back from behind to defeat Arkansas last weekend.

No. 3 Ole Miss at No. 25 Florida | Avg. Price: $136.89 | Get-in: $57

Ole Miss means business this year, and Saturday’s game against Florida will likely attest to their building dominance. Following a dethronement of Alabama two weeks ago, the Rebels now head to Gator Nation on Saturday to take on Florida, who looks to skyrocket up the AP Top 25 poll with a huge upset victory. Florida vs Ole Miss tickets currently average $136.89 and the get-in price is $57 on the secondary market.

No. 23 West Virginia at No. 15 Oklahoma | Avg. Price: $107.26 | Get-in: $52

Memorial Stadium in Oklahoma will welcome Saturday’s game between the Sooners and West Virginia Mountaineers. Oklahoma vs West Virginia tickets now own a secondary market average of $107.26 and the cheapest ticket available is listed for $52. The Mountaineers have led an offensive onslaught over their first three games, putting up a cumulative 130 points while allowing just 23. They’ll hope to continue that production on the road against an Oklahoma team that has had similar offensive success during the season’s opening three weeks.
