Tennessee Hosting Georgia Is SEC’s Most Expensive Matchup On Secondary Market

As if separating the top of the SEC wasn’t hard enough already, a week of mixed results from the top teams in the league has led to even more difficult decisions in the ranking process. 

After losing to Ole Miss at home two weeks ago, Alabama was an underdog for the first time since 2009, and reminded college football fans exactly why it has been so long with a 38-10 stomping over Georgia at Sanford Stadium.

Ole Miss, on the other hand, couldn’t keep up their quality play as they were swallowed up at The Swamp in a night game against the Florida Gators. The Gators had the game in hand by halftime and ran away with a 38-10 victory.

LSU continued to cruise, as Heisman favorite Leonard Fournette kept rolling with another strong performance. Missouri defeated South Carolina at home, Arkansas received their first conference win on the road against Tennessee, and Texas A&M remained explosive against Mississippi State, winning 30-17 at Kyle Field. 

There are four SEC matchups this weekend, which are all being played on Saturday, October 10. The largest change is the game between No. 7-ranked LSU and the South Carolina Gamecocks. After the flooding in South Carolina, the game has been moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, as classes at South Carolina have been cancelled for the week and law enforcement and other aids are needed at other places other than the football stadium. 

It gives LSU fans short notice to create their famous tailgating setups on the fly, but something the fan base is obviously excited about after being given an extra home game. TailgateGiant.com has everything LSU fans need for the last-minute set-up, including team-centric flags, cornhole boards, tents, cups, grilling equipment and any other game day accessories to create a spirited tailgate area. They’re even running a free cornhole boards giveaway to fans this month, giving the winner his/her choice at which set they’d like.

With the secondary market ticket situation a little murky due to the late location switch, TiqIQ.com has information for the SEC clashes that will have an impact on the conference standings. 

The most expensive SEC tickets this weekend involve the matchup between Tennessee and Georgia at Neyland Stadium, having an average price of $152.10 and a get-in price of $65. The Volunteers are still searching for their first conference victory after two tight losses, both within their conference and nonconference schedules. Following in second is the contest between Missouri and Florida at Faurot Field. The Gators are coming off an obviously huge victory against Ole Miss and are atop the SEC East standings as a result. The average ticket price is $116.82 with a get-in price of $61.

Lastly, the Alabama Crimson Tide look to extend their new winning streak to three against a struggling Arkansas team. The average ticket price for entrance into Bryant-Denny Stadium is $112.76 with a get-in price of $47.
