UCLA Hosts BYU For Their Second Most Expensive Game Of The Season Following Game At USC

UCLA football

The UCLA Bruins head into Week 3 of the college football schedule preparing for their first real test of the season against the No. 19-ranked BYU Cougars. BYU has been college football’s team of destiny early on, winning their first two games against Nebraska and Boise State on midfield Hail Mary touchdown throws in the final seconds of each game.

UCLA hasn’t been in a tight contest yet after dispatching Virginia in the season opener by a final score of 34-16, and then cruising to a 37-3 road victory against the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels. Freshman quarterback Josh Rosen has been spot on thus far, throwing for 574 yards with four touchdowns and one interception, while completing 64.9 percent of his passes. Rosen’s accuracy dipped in game two, hitting only 22 of his 42 pass attempts, in addition to having his first turnover of the season.

The Bruins are tied atop the Pac-12 South division with Arizona, Utah and USC—all sporting 2-0 overall records. With a challenging contest this weekend and an equally tough Pac-12 schedule, below is a look at secondary market prices for UCLA football tickets for the rest of the season, with information provided by RazorGator.com.

11/28/2015 | USC Trojans vs. UCLA Bruins | Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum | Average Price: $233.43 | Get-in Price: $111

9/19/2015 | UCLA Bruins vs. BYU Cougars | Rose Bowl | Average Price: $131.85 | Get-in Price: $48

10/3/2015 | UCLA Bruins vs. Arizona State Sun Devils | Rose Bowl | Average Price: $118.95 | Get-in Price: $48

10/22/2015 | UCLA Bruins vs. California Bears | Rose Bowl | Average Price: $112.99 | Get-in Price: $41

UCLA’s most expensive game of the season is on the road, in which a matchup with the USC Trojans may decide who finishes in first-place of the Southern division in the Pac-12. USC has one of the most veteran-filled teams in the country and have a real shot to earn a spot in the College Football Playoff. If both teams are undefeated going into this game, it’ll be the game of the week across college football, without question.

This weekend’s game against BYU is the second most expensive game of the season, having an average ticket price of $131.85 and a get-in price of $48. It doesn’t compare to the USC game that has an average ticket price of $233.43, but it’s the most important non-conference game on UCLA’s schedule and the fans will surely pack the Rose Bowl to give the Bruins a needed push into conference play.

UCLA also hosts Arizona State and California for some of the most expensive secondary market tickets this season. California is in the Northern division and they’re currently the only 2-0 team in that half of the Pac-12.

New York Yankees Face Multiple Rivals In Final 17-Game Playoff Run

Yankees - CC ARod

It’s getting a little crowded at the top of the American League Wild Card standings, as the New York Yankees are realizing their lead isn’t as comfortable as it was just a couple of weeks ago.

A 4.5-game lead for the top American League Wild Card spot has been reduced in the past two weeks, as the Yankees are currently just 3.5 games up on the Houston Astros, who were just recently passed in the standings by the surprising Texas Rangers for first-place in the American League West division. Behind the Astros—outside of the playoff cut-line—is the Minnesota Twins by 1.5 games, followed by the Los Angeles Angels, who trail by 3.5 games.

The Yankees are not out of the division race just yet, being back of the Toronto Blue Jays by three games with a three-game set in Toronto next week. With 17 games remaining, below is a look into some of the marquee games left on the schedule in terms of secondary market ticket prices for Yankees games, according to RazorGator.com.

9/18/2015 | New York Mets vs. New York Yankees | Citi Field | Average Price: $257.26 | Get-in Price: $78

9/19/2015 | New York Mets vs. New York Yankees | Citi Field | Average Price: $324.14 | Get-in Price: $110 | Thunderstick Giveaway

9/20/2015 | New York Mets vs. New York Yankees | Citi Field | Average Price: $198.60 | Get-in Price: $68 | Matt Harvey Fathead Giveaway

9/21—23/2015 | Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees | Rogers Centre | Average Price: $203.54 (Three Games)

9/28—10/1/2015 | New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox | Yankees Stadium | Average Price: $90.60 (Four Games)

The most expensive Yankees tickets on the secondary market are for the Subway Series against the Mets, who are most certainly headed to the postseason. This version of the Subway Series may be the most important one to be played in the past decade, with playoff chances being affected for both teams. The most expensive of the three games is on September 19, which features an average ticket price of $324.14 and a get-in price of $78.

The most important series in terms of playoff positioning comes against the Toronto Blue Jays from September 21-23. The average ticket price of the three games together is $203.54, with the most expensive of the three coming on September 22. That contest carries an average price of $216.57 and a get-in price of $24.

Just as important will be New York’s last home series—and the second-to-last series of the regular season—when they battle the arch nemesis Boston Red Sox. With a possible playoff spot hanging in the balance, the two rivals will meet at Yankees Stadium for a four-game series, as the Red Sox would love nothing more than to knock the Yankees out of contention while they’re mired in their own disappointing season. Boston has played better in recent weeks despite their current standing in the AL East basement and will get their crack at the Bronx Bombers in the season’s final week. This series arguably contains the best value of any left on the Yankees’ 2015 schedule.

Most Expensive New York Mets Tickets Remaining Are Against Yankees and Nationals


After reeling off an eight-game winning streak that included a sweep of the division rival Washington Nationals, the New York Mets are just counting down the days until their first National League East division title since 2006, which was also the team’s last postseason appearance.

With 17 games left on the schedule, the New York Metropolitans have an 8.5-game lead in the division, and even with their past ominous history, this year’s Mets team shows no signs of pulling off yet another unspeakable collapse.

After the series finale tonight against the Miami Marlins, the Mets close out the regular season with a three-game set against the New York Yankees, the Atlanta Braves, a four-game series with the Cincinnati Reds, a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies and finally, one last series against the Washington Nationals.

With a division title in their grasps, fans can only hope that the Mets will be at Citi Field when the bow is tied on an amazing season. With information provided RazorGator.com, below are the most expensive Mets tickets on the secondary market remaining this year, which fans can use to try and plan a trip to the ballpark when the division is wrapped up.

10/2/2015 – 10/4/2015 | New York Mets vs. Washington Nationals | Average Price: $118.43 (three games)

With both teams in the thick of postseason races, the Subway Series between the Mets and the Yankees takes on a little more added importance this season, which is just fine for fans of both sides. The Yankees are three games behind the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League East division, but have a tight grip on one of the two Wild Card spots. The most expensive of the three-game series at Citi Field is on September 19, having an average ticket price of $318.07 with a get-in price of $110 and fans will be greeted with Thundersticks when they enter the stadium.

After a showdown with the Braves next week, the Mets’ most expensive games come in the final series of the regular season opposite the Nationals. For the Mets organization and its fans, the hope is the division race will be officially wrapped up by then, as to avoid panic considering the stronghold they have on the NL East at the moment. In addition, fans will have the opportunity to show their appreciation for the playoff-bound Mets. The three-game ticket price average on the secondary market is $118.43, with the most expensive game coming on October 3. That contest features an average price of $135.13 and a get-in price of $19.

Ohio State Dazzles In Win Against Virginia Tech, Cheap Ohio State Tickets Available For Three September Home Games

Ohio State

The hype is real for the Ohio State Buckeyes, whose largest problem seems to be how they’ll utilize all their talent efficiently and effectively throughout the course of a season.

After coming out like gangbusters with a 14-0 lead, turnovers allowed the Virginia Tech Hokies to take a 17-14 lead at halftime before the Buckeyes’ skill players dazzled their way to a 42-24 victory at Lane Stadium. Cardale Jones threw for two touchdowns and rushed for one, Braxton Miller caught and rushed for a touchdown and Ezekiel Elliot rushed for a touchdown en route to picking up 122 yards on only 11 carries.

But the Buckeyes are still clearly experimenting, as there were times where the offense sputtered and out of rhythm. But the fact remains the Buckeyes ceiling is higher than any team in the country, as explosive flashes were shown throughout last night.

With their most difficult test of the month out of the way, the Buckeyes are primed to reach a 4-0 start with the rest of their September schedule. Below are the secondary market prices for Ohio State Buckeyes tickets for the rest of September, where there isn’t much resistance for the defending National Champions.

9/12/2015 | Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Hawaii Rainbow Warriors | Ohio Stadium | Average Price: $130.88 | Get-in Price: $52

9/19/2015 | Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Northern Illinois Huskies | Ohio Stadium | Average Price: $156.39 | Get-in Price: $75

9/26/2015 | Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Western Michigan Broncos | Ohio Stadium | Average Price: $137.33 | Get-in Price: $67

Hawaii impressed in their first game, defeating Colorado at home as underdogs. Northern Illinois held home court advantage against the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels, winning 38-30 and Western Michigan had the most difficult matchup between the three, losing to the No. 5-ranked Michigan State Spartans 37-24.

The most expensive of the three games is on September 19th against the Huskies with an average ticket price of $156.39 and a get-in price of $75. It’s a three-game home stretch for the Buckeyes who go on the road on October 3rd against the Indiana Hoosiers for their first Big 10 conference game.

If fans are looking to see the Buckeyes play at Ohio Stadium, September is the time to do so. After the aforementioned three-game stretch, the Buckeyes host the Penn State Nittany Lions in mid-October with an average ticket price approaching $400, face Minnesota in early November with an average ticket price over $200, and Michigan State (November 21st) with an average around $330.

As the wins pile up, the demand to see the No. 1 team in the country will only rise.

Tennessee Volunteers Move To 1-0, Host Oklahoma Sooners Saturday For Their Most Expensive Game In September

Tennessee Vols

The Tennessee Volunteers can at least be proud of their offensive effort during their Week 1 win against the Bowling Green Falcons. The Volunteers put up double-digit points in every quarter, racked up 604 yards of offense, not to mention 29 first downs, and ran the rock in tremendous fashion.

In fact, Tennessee had two 100-yard rushers, Alvin Kamara (15 carries for 144, two touchdowns) and Jalen Hurd (23 carries for 123 yards and three touchdowns), while quarterback Joshua Dobbs ran for 89 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. In addition, he completed 15-of-22 passes for 205 yards and two touchdowns.

Although Bowling Green isn’t a walkover opponent, the Volunteers yielded more offense than they probably expected, giving up 557 yards of offense and 30 points to the Falcons before clamping down in the fourth quarter. This Saturday, the Volunteers have an even more explosive opponent when the Oklahoma Sooners come into Neyland Stadium. The Sooners, ranked 19th in the country, had a particularly easy Week 1 matchup with the Akron Zips, where the 41-3 final was well in hand prior to the clock reaching zero.

The stakes are much higher for both programs this weekend and it comes with higher prices for Tennessee Volunteers tickets on the secondary market. According to RazorGator.com, the average price of Saturday’s game is $283.41 with a get-in price of $139. It is the most expensive Tennessee game in the next five contests before they host the Georgia Bulldogs on October 10. The game against Oklahoma is currently drawing higher prices than the Volunteers’ game against the Alabama Crimson Tide on October 24, which has an average ticket price of $233.47 and a get-in price of $129.

After the game against the Sooners, Tennessee hosts Western Carolina with an average ticket price of $95.88 and a get-in price of $30, before traveling to Florida for a much-anticipated showdown with the Gators. That game on September 26 has an average ticket price of $168.90 and a get-in price of $57. Prior to the game against Georgia, Tennessee faces Arkansas with an average ticket price of $217.26 and a get-in price of $67.

A 2-0 start with a huge non-conference win against Big 12 powerhouse Oklahoma would truly ignite the season for Tennessee. As it stands now, they’re off to a good start in potentially exceeding their preseason expectations.
