Get In prices for Week 1’s top NCAA football games

West Virginia Mountaineers at Pitt Panthers

This Thursday night game was on fire the first two weeks of August with prices up to double compared to July. Ticket prices have come back to earth since then, but now might be the best time to buy. There are only a few hundred tickets left on the secondary market so all the inventory might be sold out already, which would be no surprise since this game was our top selling for the past few weeks.

TicketCity Best Bet: There are a few singles left behind the Pitt sideline, which will be the best bang-for-your-buck. But if you’re not planning on going alone, you’ll have to sit in the upper level on the Pitt side. For the visitors, Section 114 has 3 available at more than $500 each while upper 500-level gets you in for the lowest price.

Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic: Oregon vs Georgia

There are tons of tickets still available for this match-up at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on September 3rd. Prices have only been going down, but those are for upper-level seats. Prices on the lower-level seats have been steady, so bargain shopping is tough.

TicketCity Best Bet: You can still get lower-level corners for under $250. If you can steel your nerves, hold on and buy at the last-minute. The volume of tickets remaining for this game mean you’ll be able to get the best prices the day before or day of the game.

Utah Utes at Florida Gators

The #7 Utes come to Florida to face the Gators on September 3rd. Ticket prices for this game are flat and there’s a fair amount of inventory available. If you’re going to this game, might as well get your tickets now to ensure best selection.

TicketCity Best Bet: The Terraces are among the most expensive tickets at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, so Utes fans should check out Section 32 behind the Utah sideline for the best values. For Florida fans, upper level Section 11 has great values.

Notre Dame at Ohio State

The #5 Fighting Irish come to the Horseshoe to face off against the #2 Buckeyes on September 3rd. This is the premier match up of Week 1 and while there are enough tickets available on the secondary market, prices are still high because of the high profile teams playing. As you can see, prices have come down from the almost-$400 get in, but are still more than double the other top 5 match-ups this week.

TicketCity Best Bet: Club Seats and Section 13-17 represent some of the best value, but for this will be a game you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Go with the AA-Deck for that on-field, unforgettable experience.

Florida State vs LSU

These two traditional powerhouses face off in the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans on September 4th. This is sure to be a great match-up and even better party. There’s plenty of inventory, but prices have doubles in the past week. That usually indicates we’re heading to a sell-out but on last check there’s still over 2000 tickets available on TicketCity. Prices were originally low in July, so people are just keying in on a good bargain.

TicketCity Best Bet: Club and Loge levels will give the best compromise between being close to the action and lower prices, but you can’t go wrong with any football matchup in the Big Easy.

Other Top Games for Week 1

These match-ups might not be among our top sellers, but represent good ticket values or great games to start the college football season.

Cincinnati #23 at Arkansas #19

This match-up of top 25 teams on September 3rd is one of our best ticket values. At Razorback Stadium for this game you can find lower-level, 50-yard line tickets for under $100. Avoid the Outdoor Club level because the overhand can limit some sight lines.

Penn St at Purdue

This Thursday, September 1st game puts the Penn State Nittany Lions on the road against an underdog Boilermaker team. Tickets for under $50 can still be found, but this event is seeing decreased availability.

Houston #24 at UTSA

The Cougars face off against the Roadrunners in the Alamodome on September 3rd. Houston fans can still find bargains in Sections 132-136 behind their team’s sideline.
