There wasn’t much to be excited about after the 2014 Oklahoma Sooners football season ended, as an 8-5 overall record (5-4 Big 12 conference record) led them to finish tied for fourth-place, before getting blown out in the Russell Athletic Bowl by the Clemson Tigers.
The Sooners will look to get a more effective season out of quarterback Trevor Knight, who completed 179-of-316 passes for 2,300 yards to go along with 14 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Head coach Bob Stoops, heading into his 17th season with the program, has to fix up the defense if Oklahoma wants to have any success this season. The Sooners gave up 30 points or more in seven games a year ago, making it very tough for the offense to hang around.
With their usually tough Big 12 conference schedule, the Sooners’ toughest non-conference opponents are Tennessee in Knoxville and Tulsa. With the season nearing closer, below is an overview of the most expensive Sooners tickets on the secondary market, according to RazorGator.com.
10/10/2015 | Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns | Cotton Bowl Stadium | Average Price: $475.58 | Get-in Price: $183
Both programs have been on top of the mountain — in both the conference and all of college football — but have slipped in recent years and are looking for a way back. The Sooners are rolling with new offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley, while Texas is in year two of head coach Charlie Strong’s tenure. It is the Sooners’ most expensive game of the upcoming season on the secondary market.
9/12/2015 | Tennessee Volunteers vs. Oklahoma Sooners | Neyland Stadium | Average Price: $326.53 | Get-in Price: $116
The Sooners travel to Tennessee for their most important non-conference game of the season, and it also registers as the team’s second-most expensive game as well. The two historic programs have met three times, starting in 1968, and the Sooners have won the last two contests between the two clubs. This would be a huge, quality victory for the Sooners, as Tennessee is expected to be a rising SEC team.
11/28/2015 | Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. Oklahoma Sooners | Boone Pickens Stadium | Average Price: $239.85 | Get-in Price: $105
As expected, Oklahoma’s largest rivalry makes its way onto the most expensive tickets list, as this year’s Bedlam Series is hosted by the Cowboys. Over 85,000 fans watched Oklahoma lose to Oklahoma State last year in a thrilling overtime game, 38-35. Although OU has been historically dominant in this series, Oklahoma State has evened things out in recent years due to having a more competitive football team.
