Week 1 of the college football season is right around the corner. There are plenty of enticing matchups on tap that weekend.

Michigan-Notre Dame and Auburn-Washington are the two most high-profile games. ESPN's College GameDay is coming to South Bend for the clash between the Wolverines and the Fighting Irish, and both games could impact the College Football Playoff chase.

However, according to StubHub, neither of those contests are the most in-demand ticket for Week 1. Michigan-Notre Dame is third, while Auburn-Washington is fifth-most coveted.

The most in-demand ticket of the opening weekend? LSU vs. Miami in the AdvoCare Classic in Dallas.

LSU-Miami is ahead of Tennessee-West Virginia, Michigan-Notre Dame, Alabama-Louisville and Auburn-Washington in that order, according to this graphic from StubHub, via Saturday Down South.

As you can see, while LSU-Miami is most in-demand, the average ticket price is nowhere near the insane $652 for Michigan and Notre Dame.

LSU and Miami will play at 7:30 p.m. ET on Sept. 2 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The game will be broadcast on ABC.
