Many SEC teams are taking a breather from a grueling conference schedule to play smaller programs like Western Carolina, Texas San Antonio and Alabama A&M. However, that doesn’t mean you should spend Saturday running errands and catching up on sleep instead of catching a game.
For those die-hard fans who never take a week off, here’s a breakdown of ticket prices* across the conference courtesy of Vivid Seats.
Ole Miss at Vanderbilt
The reason to catch this game is Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson. The freshman looks to be one of the next great SEC QBs — alongside Jalen Hurts — after his electrifying debut against Texas A&M. The most affordable tickets are $42, and good seats are about $77. As a bonus, an 8 p.m. kickoff allows you to spend the day in Nashville or tailgate for 10 to 12 hours.
Arkansas at Mississippi State
If your only requirements for a good time are a football field and 22 dudes in pads, you’re in luck. Tickets are going for as little as $6, and median-priced seats are $25. This actually could be an exciting game because both teams have had their moments this season. Arkansas is constantly in and out of the rankings. The Bulldogs defeated Texas A&M on their home field not too long ago. This is easily worth 6 bucks.
No. 21 Florida at No. 16 LSU
The game, which is a make-up from Hurricane Matthew, is the marquee SEC game of the week, but ticket prices don’t reflect that. The cheap seats in Death Valley cost $18, while an average ticket runs $45. These teams are title contenders, and considering the rest of the schedule — which is littered with teams including Austin Peay and Chattanooga — this is worth the trip to see top NFL prospects like Leonard Fournette and Teez Tabor.
