This Weekend’s College Football Slate Brings Major CFP Implications
It’s the third time the College Football Playoff teams were ranked this season, but there are bound to be multiple shakeups after some key conference showdowns all throughout Saturday. In addition to Ohio State hosting Michigan State, LSU traveling to Ole Miss, USC and Oregon playing at Autzen Stadium, TCU facing Oklahoma and Baylor playing Oklahoma State, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are playing Boston College at Fenway Park as part of the Shamrock Series. It’s quite obvious that a fan cannot be at all these great contests at once, but below are the most expensive secondary market college football tickets for the weekend to help decide what are the most sought after matchups. 11/21/2015 | Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Boston College Eagles | Fenway Park | Average Price: $466.10 | Get-in Price: $263 11/21/2015 | Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Michigan State Spartans | Ohio Stadium | Average Price: $322.09 | Get-in Price: $141 11/21/2015 | Mississippi Rebels vs. LSU Tigers | Vaught Hemingway Stadium | Average Price: $203.05 | Get-in Price: $101 11/21/2015 | Clemson Tigers vs. Wake forest Demon Deacons | Clemson Memorial Stadium | Average Price: $189.35 | Get-in Price: $61 11/21/2015 | Oregon Ducks vs. USC Trojans | Autzen Stadium | Average Price: $160.16 | Get-in Price: $82 According to secondary market ticket aggregator TiqIQ.com, Notre Dame runs away in this race with the only game to have an average ticket price surpass the $400 mark. For any fan attending the special event at Fenway Park, Boston parking through ParkWhiz.com can help navigate the swamp of people entering and exiting the stadium. Starting from $14, fans can be within a mile of the ballpark to separate from the masses. Notre Dame should have no issue dominating the 3-7 Eagles of Boston College and hold onto the No. 4 spot in the CFP. In what should be a much closer affair, the Buckeyes host the Spartans at Ohio Stadium with an average ticket price of $322.09 and a get-in price of $141. This matchup will have implications on both the CFP and Big Ten Championship. Clemson looks to hold on to their No. 1 spot with a win over Wake Forest, which shouldn’t cause too many problems. For $61, fans can see the No. 1 team in the country before they move on to the national stage with the ACC Championship Game and probably one or even two CFP games. Both teams need help to reach the Pac 12 Championship game, but the Ducks and Trojans can put themselves in prime position with a win this Saturday. Entrance into Autzen Stadium has an average ticket price of $160.16 and a get-in price of $82.
