Trailing just Ohio State and Notre Dame, who have swapped places this week but held onto the top two spots all season long, the Michigan football tickets are one of just three teams to hold average ticket prices greater than $200 dollars. Despite their 2-0 start, with games against Akron and UConn coming up, Wolverine prices have declined 4% this week to an average of $207 dollars.
However, these easy opponents could also bode well for the Maize and Blue as they head into Big Ten play. It’s completely feasible that the Wolverines could roll into November undefeated, where they would then take on MSU, Nebraska, Northwestern, and Iowa, before capping the season off at The Big House against BCS Championship hopeful Ohio State.
With this tailor made schedule, we could see this talented Michigan team led by Devin Gardner making a sleeper run similar to their basketball classmates. If the Wolverines get hot and roll into the stretch, watch out for Michigan to rise above Notre Dame in the TiqIQ top 25, potentially rendering the Michigan/OSU game a showdown between the top 2 teams, with a BCS berth on the line. This could become the most expensive game in college football this season.
Major risers in the TiqIQ Top 25 this week include LSU (+12%), Michigan State (+17%), and Auburn (14%). The largest faller within the top 25 was Georgia (-6%), moving down 3 spots to #10.
