After claiming the No. 6 spot in the first ranking of schools by the College Football Playoff committee, the Alabama Crimson Tide will next travel to Baton Rouge to take on the LSU Tigers on November 8. LSU has also claimed a spot among the Top 25 schools, ranking at No. 19, and the team will also experience a bye in Week 10 of the season. Six more rankings will be announced through December 7, but the November 8 meeting between the two SEC West teams has already garnered high ticket prices on the secondary market. 

 

According to TiqIQ, the average price for LSU vs Alabama football tickets for the Week 11 game at Tiger Stadium is $446.74 on the secondary market. The game will serve as the final and most expensive home game on the LSU football schedule this season, trumping last week’s game against Ole Miss, which owned a secondary average of $250.56. The cheapest ticket available for the LSU vs Alabama game is currently listed at $147. 

Last season, the two teams met at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa in Week 11. That game saw significantly lower secondary ticket prices, averaging at $332.41 and 25.59% cheaper than this year’s game at Tiger Stadium 34% more expensive on the secondary market. It was the only home game on the Alabama football schedule that season to have an average price above $200. The Crimson Tide went on to win their ninth consecutive game of the season after beating the Tigers 38-17 at home in 2013. Much like this year, LSU had an identical 7-2 record heading into their matchup with Alabama, but the team will hope to see different results next week as their annual rivalry shifts to Baton Rouge. 

Rankings are likely to change over the season’s final five weeks, but Alabama’s visit to Louisiana will serve as one of the most expensive games in college football this season. The Crimson Tide enter their November 8 game against the Tigers at 7-1 and currently sit in third place in the SEC West behind Ole Miss and unbeaten Mississippi State.

While Alabama remains a heavy favorite to win at Tiger Stadium in next week, LSU already has experience dethroning the SEC’s top teams. Last week, the Tigers led an upset over Ole Miss at home, taking down the then-unbeaten Rebels 7-10 in a pivotal divisional matchup. LSU owns a 7-2 record and sits in the basement of an increasingly competitive SEC West this season, but their low placement won’t hinder the importance behind the game. If Alabama hopes to keep whatever playoff hopes they have left alive, they’ll need to come away with a win over the roar of one of college football’s most audible and loyal fan bases in LSU.
