Currently the average resale price of a ticket to the College Football National Championship is $1,122 according to our friends at seatgeek.com. As a comparison, here is how much the average resale price for the past National Championship games has ended up at:
2015 (Oregon-Ohio State): $845
2014 (Florida State-Auburn): $1,005
2013 (Notre Dame-Alabama): $1,705
2012 (Alabama-LSU): $1,739

As a note, a week out this year's College Football Championship falls pretty much in line with last year's, which at this point had an average resale price $1,096. As you can see based on the above numbers, that price ended up coming down quite a bit, so if the market reacts the same way this year fans should see prices drop as the game approaches.
At Seatgeek.com, they have seen prices come down since Thursday. Shortly after the two teams were decided the median listing price was $1,346, but it is currently down to $1,029. That's a 24 percent drop. They now have tickets for less than $600, whereas just a few days ago the cheapest tickets were more than $750.
