2018 College Football Playoff Report Below

In a bit of a surprise, both Georgia and Ohio State got shut out of the College Football Playoffs in favor of Oklahoma, which defeated Texas in the Big 12 championship game in convincing fashion. The win catapulted Oklahoma into the top four and the national semifinals will set up like this: No. 1 Alabama will play No. 4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl and No. 2 Clemson will play No. 3 Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl. Both games are set for December 29, ahead of the January 7, 2019 national championship game.

According to data from secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ.com, the Cotton Bowl is trending as the most expensive national semifinal of the CFP era. The current average asking price for the Cotton Bowl is $468. The $291 average asking price for the Orange Bowl has fallen steadily, and is now among the cheapest of the decade. The average asking price of $868 for the national championship is the 4th cheapest in terms of price since 2011, when TicketIQ.com began tracking data.

For the last two years, the CFP title game has commanded big money. Demand for the game reached its pinnacle in 2017-18, according to TicketIQ.com, when fans pushed the average asking price to $4,040. The high price was likely due, in part, to the location of the game, which was at Mercedes-Benz Arena. Hometown favorite Georgia was on one sideline while perennial power Alabama was on the on the other. The next most expensive national championship was also likely a function of location – fans drove the price of the 2010-11 BCS title game up to $2,992 when Oregon played Auburn at the Fiesta Bowl in Phoenix.

The 2016-17 title game was ranked No. 3, and fans drove the price for Alabama-Clemson in Tampa to $2,898. The average asking price for the 2018-19 edition fallen, from $1,903 on December 17 to $1,863 on December 21. But that number could go up … or down … depending on which teams get to the championship.
