Updated Tuesday at noon.
Fans holding out for better prices for the Nov. 7 game between No. 5 LSU (7-0) and No. 7 Alabama (7-1) at Bryant Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa may have gotten their wish.
At StubHub, the cheapest tickets as of Tuesday around noon were a pair for $150 each in the upper deck. Last Tuesday, the cheapest tickets, also in the upper deck, were priced at $195 each for a pair.
The most expensive ticket on StubHub is going for $979, which is lower than the $1,250 tickets available last week. Did prices go down, or did the pricier tickets sell? Hard to tell.
Meanwhile, $250 to $350 will get you a ticket near midfield in the stadium’s inner bowl. Last week, you would've paid $500 for that privilege.
Tickets to the game sold through LSU were $100 each.
Kickoff is 7 p.m. for the SEC showdown, with the divisional lead and, possibly, a College Football Playoff spot on the line. LSU is trying to end a four-game losing skid to Nick Saban and Bama – one that started with that 21-0 loss in the 2011 national championship game.
The two teams are off this week, but they’re assured of meeting as top-10 opponents for a sixth time in the last eight games.
By comparison, tickets for LSU’s Oct. 17 home game with then-No. 11 Florida ranged from $135 for upper deck seats to $1,200 in the stadium club.
