College Football Playoff: How much will tickets cost you now?




Want tickets for tonight's College Football Playoff national title game? Be prepared to pay up.

The cheapest second-hand tickets I've found online this morning cost more than $1,500 apiece. Over the weekend, they were going for $2,000. The cheapest on Stubhub: $1,750.

According to another ticket site, Rukkus, an anticipated drop in ticket prices because of fan fatigue (they saw this matchup a year ago) never happened. The average price of $1,255 is up 42 percent from last year's game ($722), according to Rukkus.

For what it's worth, I've seen a lot more orange than crimson in downtown. We'll see what the fan ratio ends up being later today at Raymond James Stadium.
