How To Find The Cheapest Arizona State vs USC Tickets + Face Value Options

August 22, 2019

As Pac-12 rivals, USC and Arizona have played annually since 1995, though the rivalry dates to 1978. USC has the edge, winning 21 of 34 meetings, though the Sun Devils beat the Trojans at home the last time they played, snapping a three-game USC win streak.  If this year's game is anything like last year's thriller (highlights below), it will be well worth whatever you pay.


For the game at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe on November 9th, unsold tickets are available via Ticketmaster staring from $40. In addition to upper level tickets, there are unsold tickets in most lower level sections for fans to get up close to the action.  In the lower level prices are15%-25% lower when buying directly from the team, after fees. The below screenshot from Ticketmaster shows availability directly from the team in section 19.

On the secondary market, the average cost of an Arizona State ticket this season is $108, making it No. 36 in terms of price across the NCAA – but fans will pay a premium for the USC game, which is the second priciest of the season. The average asking price for a ticket is $134, and the cheapest ticket is trending at $38. Only the November 30 Arizona game, at $142, will cost fans more.

The USC game is also included in several ASU ticket plans, including season tickets, and the Pitchfork Mini Plan, which also includes the Colorado and Oregon games. The Pitchfork plan starts at $99. Fans with a Mobile Pass can also get into the USC game as well as every other game on the schedule.  The mobile pass gets you a seat in section GA 2 for every game, which you can buy here for $175.  On a comparative basis, the full schedule of games on the secondary market would cost close to $300.

There are a handful of sections in which seats are only available on the primary market, including Sections 17 and 18 below the scoreboard in the end zone. These seats start at $80. Sections 4 and 10, located in the lower bowl on the ASU side, are also only available via Ticketmaster, and seats start at $125.

It can also be cheaper to buy on the primary market in some cases. For example, seats in Row 36 of Section 27 on the visitors’ side cost $95 on the primary market, as compared to $124 on the secondary market.

For the cheapest tickets, the secondary market might be slightly cheaper as game time approaches, so it's important to shop around all your options.
