Michigan Football Tickets Don't Make the National Top 25 in Price

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Following a 2013 season that saw the Michigan Wolverines host notable games against Notre Dame and an annual battle with Ohio State, Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor will see limited visits from top-tier schools this season when the team takes to the gridiron next month.

A weak 2014 home schedule has dropped the University of Michigan out of the Top 25 priciest college football programs on the secondary market for the upcoming season, welcoming its most distinguished opponent on Oct. 11 when Penn State travels to Ann Arbor. The shortage of big-name schools at home on the Michigan football schedule has greatly affected the secondary ticket market for Michigan games this season.

According to TiqIQ, Michigan football tickets currently have an average price of $117.10 on the secondary market With just over six weeks remaining until Week 1 kickoff on August 3. This number falls just shy of entering the Top 25, as the 25th school, the University of Florida, holds an average price of $118.64 for the upcoming 2014 season.

While the ebb and flow of the secondary market is constantly fluctuating, Michigan may move up in ranking come August but the drop in average price in comparison to last season is noteworthy in itself regardless of placement among other schools. For the 2013 season, the Wolverines had an average price of $197.41, marking over a 40% decline in average secondary ticket price from last season.
