Auburn/LSU tickets prices are escalating like the fan craze

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

By Sherea Harris

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - It's a clash of the Tigers this weekend and Auburn fans are just counting the days to one of the biggest games of the season. Undefeated Auburn hosts the undefeated Bayou Bengals from LSU this Saturday.

If you are so fortunate to have a ticket, you may want to keep it in a safe place. The game is expected to be Auburn's number one selling home game of the season.

Ticket broker, AAATIX, in Hoover says the game is its top seller.

Fans are shelling out $120.00 to $600.00 for a ticket.

Auburn's revival has made this "the" game to see. It's two undefeated SEC teams that are in the BCS top 10. Some of Auburn's biggest fans can't believe how much the tickets are.

Charlotte Farnham said, "That's just a lot. You know I love Auburn but you have to draw the line somewhere."

Carl Mosher said, "I would not be willing to pay that much just because I can't afford it. But I would love to go it would be cool."

Steve Susce, co-owner of AAATIX said, "It is the game of the year. For Auburn, it's a make or break game for them," said Susce. "If they win that game it looks like their hardest game is going to be in Tuscaloosa and that could be a dueling one versus two if the dominoes fall where they might."

Ticket marketplace, Stubhub, is reporting it's highest sell at $717.00

Another huge game is the Iron Bowl and those ticket prices have gone up too because of Auburn's success.

They are starting at $300.00 with AAATIX and going up to a grand.
