The Alabama vs. LSU tilt on Nov. 5 is currently the hottest ticket of the 2011 football season. According to FanSnap, a search engine that collects data from various online ticket resale websites, the average price for the game in Bryant-Denny Stadium on Nov. 5 is now $694. That's up from $675 earlier this week and about $425 at the end of September. All for a ticket that has a $70 face value.
Last year's LSU vs Bama contest in Baton Rouge had an average price of $385.
The next hottest ticket for 2011 is, unsurprisingly, the Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State tilt on Dec. 3. FanSnap says the average price for the game in Stillwater is currently $629. Obviously the ticket prices for both of these games are expected to increase as kickoff gets closer.
Michael Janes, the CEO of FanSnap, told Roll Bama Roll the demand for tickets this season is unusually high.
"It is not typical to see six college football games in a season with $400+ average ticket market prices," he said.
