Week 9 SEC ticket prices: Florida-Georgia cocktail party not a cheap invite
From a cocktail party in Jacksonville to a likely beatdown in College Station, the matches are widely varied this week in the SEC.
For those considering a late ticket purchase to a Week 9 game, here’s a handy breakdown of ticket prices* courtesy of Vivid Seats.
No. 14 Florida vs. Georgia
This one at EverBank Field in Jacksonville isn’t all that expensive to get into at $66, but to do it big time, you’ll have to shell out major green. With some tickets listed at nearly $5,500, and many more than $500, the median price is driven up to $180. Dubbed the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, this game will have tiers of fans in and around the stadium. It’s not advised to drop a few paychecks to see this game, but it’s worth snagging a cheaper ticket to see a very good Florida team, Georgia’s Jacob Eason and plenty of interesting fans.
Samford at Mississippi State
If you’re in Starkville this weekend, raid your couch cushions and take the kids to see some football. Tickets for the struggling Bulldogs’ home game against Samford can be had for as little as $4. That’s less than a soda inside Davis Wade Stadium. If you’re in the mood to splurge and get a closer view of Dan Mullen’s 2-5 team, average tickets cost $10. Not a bad way to spend the day if the lawn doesn’t need mowing.
No. 18 Tennessee at South Carolina
Now that the weather in Columbia is bearable, this is a great chance to see a top SEC team take on the Gamecocks in Williams-Brice Stadium. The Volunteers are still in play to win the SEC East. South Carolina may have found its quarterback in Jake Bentley. Though Tennessee is a superior team, it tends to play interesting games. The cheap seats are available for $30, while average tickets cost $86.
