Sugar Bowl tickets less expensive than previous games

Dec 26, 2014

Tickets to the Alabama Crimson Tide's national semifinal matchup against the Ohio State Buckeye's may not be as high-priced as you think. At the least, the Sugar Bowl's secondary market is friendlier than for Alabama's recent national championship games, suggesting that fans are either tapped out or saving their money for a possible title game appearance on Jan. 12. According to, several online brokers have Sugar Bowl tickets available about a quarter to a third below market rates. A few online markets list upper level seats for less than $200 each — in the neighborhood of what initial buyers paid. The other semifinal, the Rose Bowl game between Oregon and Florida State, is even cheaper, with prices starting around $100, well below face value.
