Cupcake games are out of the way (mostly), and the sexy SEC matchups we’ve been waiting for are here. But can you actually afford to catch them live?
Here’s a breakdown of Week 3 ticket prices for every SEC game, courtesy of Vivid Seats.
No. 1 Alabama at No. 19 Ole Miss
Ole Miss is enjoying a hot streak against Alabama, winning the last two showdowns. Unfortunately, if you’re not an inappropriately dressed student, it’ll cost you some serious green to get through the door. The median price for tickets is $215, and the get-in-the-door bill sits at a cool $139. You may be better off heading five hours east and watching Auburn host No. 17 Texas A&M for a minimum of $39 ($80 median).
North Texas at No. 23 Florida
North Texas isn’t enticing, but all it takes is $12 to see nationally ranked Florida. A Steve Spurrier pregame routine is enough to make that money well-spent. From that point on, a few Luke Del Rio to Brandon Powell connections are thrown in for free. Even if you want to splurge for a nice seat, the median price for available tickets is $45. Sure, it won’t be the type of atmosphere a Florida State or Miami brings to Gainesville, but this is a cost-effective way to cross The Swamp off your SEC bucket list.
Mississippi State at No. 20 LSU
For $30, you can see a dangerous Mississippi State team take on LSU and Heisman candidate Leonard Fournette in Death Valley. The median price for tickets to this solid SEC matchup is $65. Chances are you’ll see a worthy performance by a future NFL star in Fournette or the further collapse of LSU’s passing game and the ultimate demise of Les Miles. Shut up and take my money.
