Iron Bowl Tickets Nearly $200 More Than Next Highest Priced Game on Auburn Schedule
At the end of the 2012 season, the Auburn Tigers needed to change their image after having their worst season in 60 years. After hiring Gus Malzahn (the team’s offensive coordinator from 2009-2011) to install a hurry-up, no-huddle attack, the program saw instant success.
The unforgettable 2013 season included the program’s eighth SEC championship with a win over Missouri to proceed to the National Championship Game (with a certain game against Alabama that may have been one of the greatest finishes in NCAA football history). Even though the Tigers fell to Jameis Winston’s Florida State team, Auburn football was officially back.
Year two under Malzahn saw some struggles, finishing fourth in the SEC Western Division behind Alabama, Mississippi State and Ole Miss. The Tigers started off 5-0 but lost four of their last five, including their bowl game against Wisconsin.
Embarking on year three under Malzahn will represent his first with a new quarterback after Nick Marshall’s departure. Jeremy Johnson is the projected starter, with two weapons at wide receiver in Ricardo Lewis and D’Haquille Williams, the latter of which is projected a first-round NFL Draft pick next year.

Most Expensive: 11/28/2015 | Auburn Tigers vs. Alabama Crimson Tide | Jordan-Hare Stadium | Average Price: $548.34 | Get-in Price: $228
It is unlikely that any Auburn-Alabama game will ever top 2013’s version where Chris Davis returned a missed field goal attempt into a game-winning touchdown. Last season, the two teams had a shootout that resulted in a 55-44 Alabama victory, leading to an attendance over 100,000 people at Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa. Alabama leads the overall series 43-35-1, but the Tigers will have the advantage of this year’s contest being held at home, where there have been some fond recent memories.
11/7/2015 | Texas A&M Aggies vs. Auburn Tigers | Kyle Field | Average Price: $350.89 | Get-in Price: $123
One of the more surprising losses of the 2014 season was the Tigers losing to Texas A&M at home on November 8. The Tigers were 7-1 and ranked No. 3 heading into Week 9 of the season when Kyle Allen put himself on the national map in a 41-38 road victory, throwing for 277 yards and four touchdowns. Allen will be back for his second matchup against Auburn during this season’s clash, which takes place at Kyle Field.
9/5/2015 | Louisville Cardinals vs. Auburn Tigers | Georgia Dome | Average Price: $308.91 | Get-in Price: $89
Auburn will take on the Louisville Cardinals in the inaugural game of the 2015 season. The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game will take place in the Georgia Dome and will be the first matchup of the entire season. These two teams met once in 1974, with the Tigers winning 16-3. In just five years, the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game has established itself as the pre-eminent season-opening game in college football, attracting the biggest names in the game to Atlanta each year. They’ll be playing for the Old Leather Helmet.
