notre-dame-football-2019The Fighting Irish remain the most well-known Independent in college football. This year, their biggest home game in terms of interest and secondary ticket market average asking price will be against USC. Notre Dame is currently ranked No. 11 in USA Today’s preseason poll, but none of their seven home opponents are in the Top 25.

Other than the expanded cheap seats, primary market pricing remains the same as last season. In addition to regular seats, there are club seats available directly from the school in the Seven on 9 Club section. According to the UND.com, these seats "provide a premium hospitality experience on a game-by-game basis and includes exclusive access to amenities and services for the patrons within. Located on the ninth floor of Corbett Family Hall, this club space allows its 130 guests the opportunity to socialize throughout the game and enjoy an climate-controlled seat with a great view of the field and campus."

For fans looking to get in on the cheap, the four corners on the upper level are the best value at Notre Dame stadium, and here’s a little insider information from OneFootDown: “sections 101-104 & sections 134-136 are great deals with the jumbotron right across the stadium on the south side.”

TicketIQ is committed to the cheapest tickets possible, and we make much less on sold out tickets compared to other major marketplaces like StubHub and Vivid.

Notre Dame Still Tops 25 Most Expensive College Football Tickets For 2015

There have been a few crazy things to happen during the 2015 college football regular season. The Michigan Wolverines, despite a recent loss to the Michigan State Spartans, have improved to a Top 25 team in the first year under Jim Harbaugh. Three American Athletic Conference teams are currently in the AP Top 25, Memphis, Houston and Temple.

Some of these shakeups have shifted the TicketIQ Top 25, which tracks the home secondary market average price across college football tickets. Despite a loss to Clemson, Notre Dame tickets still sit atop the list and surprising seasons from Michigan and Texas A&M have brought those tickets into the second and third spots. Ohio State tickets, which topped the list for most of last year have dropped to No. 4 due to a weak home schedule and underwhelming play, though the Buckeyes are still the No. 1 team in the AP Poll.

The SEC, like the AP Poll, dominates the TicketIQ Top 25 with 10 schools on the list. A&M leads the pack followed by Auburn, Georgia, LSU and Florida in the top-10. The most surprising SEC school to make the list may be Kentucky, which slides in at No. 22. The Wildcats have two big upcoming games against Tennessee and Louisville which help boost prices at Commonwealth Stadium.


Previewing The 2015 Notre Dame Football Schedule


The 2014 Notre Dame Fighting Irish started their season with six straight victories, but a controversial road loss to the Florida State Seminoles derailed their season. Notre Dame dropped five of its last seven games to finish with a disappointing 8-5 record. Despite their late season slide, Notre Dame picked up an impressive win over the LSU Tigers in the Music City Bowl. Sophomore quarterback Malik Zaire earned his first start against LSU—and impressed the coaching staff. Zaire completed 12-of-15 passes for 96 yards and one touchdown. Zaire rushed for 96 yards and one touchdown as LSU’s defense was unable to stop him. Quarterback Everett Golson had a rocky season and will likely compete with Zaire during spring practice. Regardless of who is under center, the presence of wide receiver, William Fuller, will make his life a little easier. Fuller was dominant last season as he caught 76 passes for 1,094 yards and 15 touchdowns. Running back Tarean Folston, who rushed for a team-high 889 yards and six touchdowns, will also return.

Entering the 2015 season, expectations are high for Notre Dame. The presence of Golson, Fuller, and Folston will present match-up issues for opposing defenses. Notre Dame is also armed with a strong recruiting class. Some publications rank Notre Dame’s class as the 13th best class. Notre Dame secured letters of intent from the top-ranked tight end prospect, Alize Jones and the fourth highest rank quarterback, Brandon Wimbush. Running back Dexter Williams, who is a Top-5 running back recruit, also committed to South Bend. Since Notre Dame is not affiliated with any conference, its schedule is normally a little unorthodox. Notre Dame will play a bevy of opponents from the ACC while fitting in annual games against USC and Stanford.

The current average price for 2015 Notre Dame football tickets is $371.01 on the secondary market. The most expensive home game on the schedule will come October 17 against the USC Trojans. Notre Dame vs USC tickets currently have an average price of $507.74 with a get-in price of $314.
