With top-10 games and a hurricane on the horizon this weekend, ticket prices are wildly unpredictable.
However, now is a sweet time for affordable impact games across the conference, so here’s the Vivid Seats breakdown:
No. 9 Tennessee at No. 8 Texas A&M
The game between two top-10 teams will set you back. If you’re not willing to spend the dough, stop reading now. The median price for tickets at $310 seems about right for a game of this magnitude. To get in the gates at Kyle Field is an absurd $196. In case you didn’t know, this stadium is monstrous, so you’ll need an expensive set of binoculars to see the game from your expensive seat. On the bright side, this game has all the makings for a classic, with a strong Aggies group and a Tennessee team with a flair for the dramatic.
LSU at No. 18 Florida
This game looks great on paper, but Hurricane Matthew could make it a miserable experience for fans. With the weather in mind, the median price for tickets is $79. The cheapest tickets are $17. If you don’t mind miserable, windy, wet conditions with your football, jump at this opportunity. I would suggest watching this one from your (presumably) dry living room.
No. 1 Alabama at No. 16 Arkansas
If you’re channeling your inner Goldilocks and don’t want a game that is too expensive or recently under siege from a hurricane, here’s one that’s just right. This SEC showcase could prove to be one of the biggest games of the year. The Razorbacks pose another tough test for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide on their path to another SEC West title. Bret Bielema looks to have a quarterback capable of pulling off the upset in Austin Allen. To get into a solid seat will cost $121. The most affordable ticket is $69. I didn’t say it was cheap, but these prices are surprisingly low. If you can’t catch Alabama this weekend, don’t worry. The Tide have a string of intriguing games after this one.
