Mets

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.

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.

Hard Knocks’ Houston Texans Hope To Parlay Screen Time Into 2015 Attendance Rise

JJ Watt

The Houston Texans enter the preseason already with a disadvantage, as star running back Arian Foster is going to miss at least the first half of the season after having surgery to repair his injured groin. Texans running backs Chris Polk and Alfred Blue will be handling most of the duties until his return as a result.

There is also a quarterback position battle between Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett, who both are familiar with Texans head coach Bill O’Brien after he was the quarterback coach for the New England Patriots. Both are inexperienced starters in the NFL, which could make it tough as they first embark on the upcoming campaign.

With a lot of roster questions still to be decided, the stars of Hard Knocks on HBO continue their preseason slate this weekend. With secondary market ticket information provided by RazorGator.com, below are prices for Houston Texans tickets before the regular season begins. The organization is certainly hoping that the attention brought to the team by the HBO program will lead to increased interest and attendance at home and on the road in 2015.

8/22/2015 | Houston Texans vs. Denver Broncos | NRG Stadium | Average Price: $103.54 | Get-in Price: $27

8/30/2015 | New Orleans Saints vs. Houston Texans | Mercedes Benz Superdome | Average Price: $47 | Get-in Price: $10

9/3/2015 | Dallas Cowboys vs. Houston Texans | AT&T Stadium | Average Price: $69.74 | Get-in Price: $3

The Houston Texans start in the comfort of NRG Stadium, where they played host to the San Francisco 49ers last weekend and the Denver Broncos in their first upcoming preseason game.The game against Denver is priced at $103.54, the only remaining game with an average ticket price over the $100 mark.

Houston then hits the road to close out their preseason schedule. Week 3 against the Saints in New Orleans is the cheaper option between the two road games, as tickets have an average price of $47 and a get-in price of $10. This game will most likely provide the most value, as the starters usually play into the second half. Plus, it should be a very live atmosphere, as it always is, from the Superdome.

For the finale, the Texans play their in-state rival, the Dallas Cowboys. Entrance into Jerry’s World has an average price of $69.74, with a cheap get-in price of only $3.

Despite Julius Thomas Injury, Jaguars And Bortles Expecting Improvement in 2015

Jaguars

The wait ended for Jacksonville Jaguars fans last weekend as the preseason finally got underway with a Jaguars win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. The win came with a loss though, as former Broncos tight end Julius Thomas, a big free agent acquisition, suffered a hand injury and will miss the remainder of the preseason. Nonetheless, quarterback Blake Bortles has a few new weapons at his disposal this season, and growth is expecting from the young returning position players. It will be important for last year’s first round pick to get in a groove as soon as possible if Jacksonville has any shot this year of contending for a playoff berth. Second-round draft pick T.J. Yeldon will have to wait to contribute to the offense, as he was ruled out for the opener.

With the preseason opener in the books, below is other information for secondary market Jaguars tickets from RazorGator.com for their action leading up to Week 1 of the regular season.

8/22/2015 | New York Giants vs. Jacksonville Jaguars | MetLife Stadium | Average Price: $75.75 | Get-in Price: $9

8/28/2015 | Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Detroit Lions | EverBank Field | Average Price: $57.13 | Get-in Price: $13

9/3/2015 | Washington Redskins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars | FedEx Field | Average Price: $47 | Get-in Price: $4

The Jaguars return home in Week 3 of the preseason, where the starters are projected to see the most playing time. They host the Detroit Lions, who won their first preseason game against the New York Jets. With a get-in price of only $13, it’s a great value to see professional football at EverBank Field, especially with so many starting position players slated to get a lot of the minutes over the course of the game.

For the finale, the Jaguars travel to the nation’s capital to face the Washington Redskins with an average ticket price of $47 and a get-in price of just $4. There’s no saying how much the starters will be on the field at this point in time, but in general, teams tend to play it safe to avoid any major injuries prior to regular season games.
