Market Report: Michigan Football Tickets For Final Three Games On 2018 Schedule

After a season-opening loss to Notre Dame, it was tough to imagine that No. 4 Michigan would be in the College Football Playoff mix. But eight games later, the Wolverines are the only unbeaten team in the Big Ten and are sitting on the cusp of a shot at the Big Ten championship game AND a CFP invitation.

Michigan doesn’t have much to navigate in the next two weeks, as it plays two of the weakest teams in the Big Ten – Rutgers and Indiana – but the season finale at No. 10 Ohio State could well determine their postseason fate. According to TicketIQ.com, the average asking price for that game on the secondary market is $932, well above the current average asking price of $260 for the Big Ten Championship and more even than the SEC Championship, which will pit No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 5 Georgia, and is currently commanding $820.

Below is a look at Michigan’s three remaining games:

Michigan at Rutgers

  • When: November 10, 3:30 p.m.
  • Average asking price: $94
  • Get-in price: $62

To say that Michigan has it easy in two of their last three games of the season is a bit of an understatement. After negotiating the toughest teams in the conference, it plays two of the weakest before squaring off with Ohio State in the season finale. Rutgers is winless in the Big Ten and on an eight-game losing streak. Michigan is at the other end of the spectrum, having won eight straight. The Wolverines’ biggest challenge will be staying focused for this game and the next one before meeting the rival Buckeyes. The $94 average asking price on the secondary market is a steal for Rutgers fans to see one of the best teams in the nation.  

Indiana at Michigan

  • When: November 17 at TBD
  • Average asking price: $200
  • Get-in price: $56

Indiana and Michigan have been playing each other since 1988 and Michigan is on a 22-game streak. The Wolverines also own the series advantage, having won 57 games to Indiana’s nine. It’s unlikely that the Hoosiers will be able to snap that streak this season, as the Wolverines won eight straight after a season-opening loss to Notre Dame and have their sites set on a CFP berth. The Hoosiers have won only one conference game this season, against Rutgers, which is winless in the Big Ten. Though the game promises to be lopsided, the average asking price for a ticket to the last game of the season at Michigan Stadium is $200, according to secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ.com.

Michigan at Ohio State

  • When: November 24 at 12 p.m.
  • Average asking price: $932
  • Get-in price: $269

If the Wolverines get through the two previous games with wins, they’ll be in the driver’s seat for a game that combines a long-lived rivalry and a shot at the Big Ten conference championship, which pits the East winner vs. the West winner. At 6-0 as of November 8, Michigan was the only unbeaten team in the conference, and atop the Big Ten East. With a rivalry dating back to 1897 and so much on the line, secondary market demand for this game is among the highest of any regular-season college football game since TicketIQ.com began tracking data in 2011. Michigan holds an all-time series lead of 58-49-6, but Ohio State has won the last six consecutive.
