Ticket prices dropping for Clemson-Alabama

It's Deja Vu time as Clemson and Alabama will be facing off for the National Championship once again.
So one would think that the title game would be held somewhat close to the school's fanbases but the two teams will be playing all the way on the west coast in Santa Clara, California as the average fan will have to travel 2,428 miles. It's just madness.
Airlines are gouging passengers on ticket prices for die-hard fans that want to see their team play one last time this season.
Since the two southern schools will be playing in California, fans have had some wallet fatigue (airline and hotel prices, Christmas, Cotton Bowl trip) as game tickets on the resale market have dropped 28 percent since yesterday to only $245 according to TicketIQ. Coveted lower level tickets can be had for $550, and some tickets could get even cheaper going under the $200 barrier eventually.
Last season, get-in prices for Clemson-Alabama was $1,732 while Clemson’s Jan. 2016 title game in Glendale, Arizona was only $202.
