Saturday’s Stub Stats

This past week brought the first round of BCS rankings.  Did these rankings affect ticket sales and prices for any teams in the AP Top 25?

The following depicts the least expensive tickets found for this week’s and next week’s games for teams on the AP Top 25 as of October 16, 2011.

The prices were found using StubHub as of 12 p.m. PST on October 22, 2011.  For this data, the number in parenthesis indicates the number of tickets remaining for sale on StubHub.  Prices with a “*” indicate that StubHub data was unavailable and thus, Craigslist was used to obtain data.

 The first thing that stands out has nothing to do with ticket prices, but rather, the fact that LSU, Alabama and Boise State all have bye-weeks next week.

Last week, Washington was not in the AP Top 25 and tickets for its game against Stanford could be found for $19.00.  By Saturday, ticket prices rose to $69.00.

Arizona has fallen a few places in the rankings.  Last week, the Sun Devils were ranked 18 and tickets for their 10/15 game versus a ranked Oregon team sold for $49.00 at the low-end.  Ranked 25 for the week of October 16, 2011, the Sun Devils’ next game against a Colorado team that’s not in the top-25 can be found for as low as $9.00.

Arguably, the best buy this weekend was the Georgia Tech – Miami ticket.  For $9.00, Hurricanes fans could have had the opportunity to see their team beat a number 20 Georgia Tech team.

As for next week’s games, the Nebraska – Oklahoma match-up should see higher ticket prices, as the Cornhuskers will meet their former Big 12 competitors.  With Missouri reportedly expected to announce its decision to leave the Big 12 for the SEC, next week’s game between the Tigers and Texas A&M could be nicknamed the “SEC Newbies Bowl.”  It will be interesting to see how any announcement by Missouri drives ticket sales for this game.
