Clemson's #1 ranking drives up ticket demand for Clemson-FSU

by - Assoc. Editor -

Our friends at have let us know that this Saturday's game against Florida State is reselling for an average of $202 on the secondary market according to their data.

That’s the second most expensive Clemson game this year, behind the October 3 Notre Dame game that averaged $256.

On Tuesday night, the College Football Playoff Committee announced that Clemson had the number one ranking that caused a 13 percent increase in the median listing price the next day.

Saturday will be this season’s most expensive regular season ACC game, easily beating out the recent FSU-Georgia Tech game that averaged $145. In fact, Saturday’s game will also be more expensive than any ACC Championship Game in our database, which goes back to 2010.

Since 2010, only one Clemson-Florida State game has been more expensive on the secondary market: the October 2013 game in Clemson averaged $226. In the past six seasons, the three Clemson-FSU matchups at Clemson have all been more expensive than the three matchups in Tallahassee.

Before Florida State’s stunning loss to Georgia Tech on October 24, when it appeared that Saturday’s game might feature two unbeaten teams, the median listing price was $332. It has since dropped to $224 -- that’s a 33 percent decrease over the span of three weeks.

Clemson home tickets are averaging $109 on the secondary market this season. Through this point in the season, that’s the most expensive they have been in the past six years:

2015: $109 average resale price
2014: $74
2013: $98
2012: $86
2011: $86
2010: $93
