The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Michigan Wolverines—a classic American college football rivalry takes center stage once again this weekend. Perhaps the two most storied programs in college football will face off once again, for the 30th time since the 1978 renewal of the (mostly) annual game.
With expansive and devout fan bases, it’s no surprise that these teams are continuously amongst the biggest draws in college football. This year is no different, with Notre Dame football tickets pacing the TiqIQ Top 25 rankings, which orders the FBS teams by highest average ticket price. While Fighting Irish tickets check in at a whopping $282 dollars on average, the Wolverines are not far behind, ranking 3rd with Michigan football tickets averaging $215 per seat despite a 7% decline in the past week.
The biggest gainer this week in the TiqIQ Top 25 is none other than the Arizona State Sun Devils. Fresh off a 55-0 dismantling of Sacramento State, fans are excited for the Sun Devils to take on Wisconsin, Stanford, and USC over the next three weeks. Arizona State average ticket prices have risen 19% to $134 dollars, good for a 10 spot jump to #19 in the TiqIQ Top 25. Remember to check back every Monday to see if the Irish can continue to hold down the top spot.
