2015-16 College Football Bowl Game Ticket Prices, Ranked
December 15, 2015
In just a few days the bowl season will kick off. The first bowl will kick off Saturday, December 19 and will continue almost nonstop until the New Year's Six games on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Then of course there's the College Football National Championship Game on January 11 to crown the winner of the second College Football Playoff.
Naturally with the various schools and various locations of the bowl games, there's differing demand on the secondary market across all of these games. Major bowls such as the Rose Bowl and the two College Football Playoff semifinal games will have much more interest than a bowl between two fifth place teams.
This year the Rose Bowl takes the most expensive title when Stanford and Iowa square off on January 1. The get-in price for that game is currently $448, while no other bowl has a get-in price above $200. The two semifinal games are among the most expensive bowls as the Cotton Bowl between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Michigan State has a get-in price of $142, which ranks third. The Orange Bowl, which will pit No. 1 Clemson against No. 4 Oklahoma, ranks sixth with a get-in price of $99.
The cheapest bowl game this season will be one of the first kicking off on December 22. That would be the Boca Raton Bowl which will be between the Temple Owls and Toledo Rockets with a get-in price of just $10. Though with the low price, this game ranks fourth on SB Nation's Bowl Watchability Rankings, which could provide great value for those in attendance.
Below is a nice, colorful chart ranking this season's bowl games with significant secondary market inventory ranked by get-in price from the most expensive to least expensive.
