NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- College football fans were finally rewarded with a new spin on college football's national title game, as the first ever College Football Playoff debuted in 2014. It was a smashing success, as Ohio State and Oregon moved on to the title game, with the former claiming the championship.
Coming off that success, anticipation is high for 2015's slate of games. There so many great college football games every year, fans will be hard-pressed to watch them all. Dish (DISH - Get Report) sports programming includes ESPN Game Plan starting at $13 a month, which should cover all major games.
But when it comes to college football, nothing replaces being there. If you want to go, it's going to cost you. To that end, here are the top-six most expensive college football games for the upcoming season, according to data provided by TiqIQ, a secondary market for event tickets:
6. Georgia Bulldogs at Florida Gators, 10/31/2015
This heated rivalry is as intense as it gets, and while it comes second to Georgia's game against the Alabama, it beats out other Georgia Bulldogs tickets by at least $180 on average. Florida isn't the football powerhouse it used to be, but this game still gets fans in the seats and should be a good contest, just as it usually is when these two schools meet.
5. USC Trojans at Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 10/17/2015
Fans of the modern era remember the match-ups between the Trojans and Irish that had the likes of Brady Quinn and Matt Leinart going head-to-head. Those battles rarely disappointed and with both of these programs on an upward swing, fans could be getting a killer deal on Trojans and Fighting Irish tickets on the secondary market, despite the hefty price tag.
4. Alabama Crimson Tide at Auburn Tigers, 11/28/2015
It's never difficult to get up for the Iron Bowl, as the contest between these two rivals is known. The two sides combined for 99 total points in 2014 in an exciting, offensive contest. Nick Saban leads the championship-contending Tide into Jordan-Hare Stadium to take on an Auburn team that was in the national title game just two years ago.
3. Texas Longhorns at Oklahoma Sooners, 10/10/2015
The Red River Showdown lives on in 2015, as two of the most bitter college football rivals get together at the Cotton Bowl Stadium on October 10. The intensity comes early in 2015, as both of these teams will want to wipe away somewhat disappointing 2014 showings. With Texas landing the upset in 2013 and Oklahoma edging out the Longhorns in 2014, this rivalry is as hot as ever. Whether that means either of these teams is ready for a national title is hard to say, but fans will keep paying to get in.
2. Alabama Crimson Tide at Georgia Bulldogs, 10/3/2015
Any game involving Alabama has a shot at a top-priced list, just because Crimson Tide tickets rarely are cheap. This game has special meaning, though, as these teams are fierce rivals and they're also entering 2015 as potential title-game threats.
1. Texas Longhorns at Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 9/5/2015
The history between the Longhorns and Fighting Irish isn't long (it's been nearly two decades since they last faced), but this ends up being Notre Dame's season and home opener for what could be a very magical 2015. While coach Brian Kelly is trying to get his Irish over the hump, rookie coach Charlie Strong seeking to get Texas back among the elite.
