BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - There are still game and airline tickets available for the college football national championship, but time is running out.

Alabama faces Clemson on Monday January 7th in Santa Clara, California.

A few airlines have added extra direct flights from the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport to either San Jose or San Francisco.

You might also consider going through a travel agent to get a package deal that includes, airfare, hotel, ground transportation, and game tickets. However, it is still going to cost you some cash.

“Ticket prices are high. Hotel prices are three times what they normally are. Airfare goes up because of the demand. So, it can get very expensive. So, having these packages available, it’s not a bargain basement kind of trip by any means. It’s a bucket list kind of thing,” said Clay Ingram, AAA Alabama.
