Auburn Football Tickets Going For Below Average For South Carolina Game

by on in

After spending the last two weeks reflecting on their first loss of the season to Mississippi State, the Auburn Tigers are set to host the South Carolina Gamecocks at Jordan-Hare Stadium this Saturday. The SEC has proven to be an unpredictable conference with momentum shifting from Alabama to the state of Mississippi in the season’s second half, and the Tigers will need to claw their way back from its middle-of-the-pack position in the competitive Western Division starting this weekend.

The Gamecocks are a good starting point on Auburn’s road to redemption after its October 11 upset to Mississippi State. Sitting at 4-3 entering Week 9, South Carolina has seen its share of promising wins against teams like Georgia and Vanderbilt, but Auburn will serve as the team’s first top-five ranked opponent this season. Former weapons Marcus Lattimore and Jadeveon Clowney won’t be on-hand to help the Gamecocks either, putting more pressure on a team that relied on the rushing dominance of Lattimore and Clowney’s defensive prowess in years past.

On top of its mediocre record, South Carolina won’t put much of a dent in Auburn’s secondary ticket market. According to TiqIQ, the average price for South Carolina vs Auburn football tickets to this Saturday’s game is $129.25 with a get-in price of $47. The average price is 2% below the home average for games on the Auburn football schedule. The Gamecocks will serve as Auburn’s third most expensive game at home this season, trailing games against Texas A&M on November 8 ($189.75/avg.) and an October 4 matchup when Auburn vs LSU football tickets have a $235.09 average price. The season average for Auburn tickets over its final three home games against South Carolina, A&M and Samford is $131.17.

A much-needed win will be at stakes for Auburn at home this weekend if they hope to remain alive in the SEC West. With Ole Miss and Mississippi State owning flawless records and Alabama clinging to their season at 6-1, the Tigers head home with the intent to keep their heads above water when they welcome South Carolina to Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday.
