How much were tickets going for outside the stadium vs. MN?

Also any ideas on what they'll be going for vs. Nebraska?

I saw them going for about $40 against Nebraska 2 years ago. There were probably some better deals than that, though, especially as kickoff drew closer.

Scalpers were paying $10 and average extra tickets from fans and alums were going for $20-30 each a half hour before.

As for Nebraska, if we are still undefeated I would guess face to $125 and if we have dropped one or two then $40-$60.

in section 43.  I was in the Alumni Band and had terrible seats sitting on the ground deep in the endzone.  I did get to spend the game looking between the MN cheerleader's legs to see the scoreboard.  Goldie got in my way a few times.  As for my tickets, my wife said no one showed up.  Hope the scalper ate the ticket.

A scalper tried to sell me a regular ticket for $15 about 30 minutes before the game, but I needed a student ticket which I found for $10 a few minutes later. (The scalper even was gonig to split up a pair)

There were a lot of people trying to offload tickets and I think the scalpers ate a few tickets on Saturday.

I paid $20 for a ticket in section 6,row 80. Bought it two hours before kickoff. I gave up on season tickets years ago due to the amount i was paying for BS games. I still go to all the games and never pay above face for any game. The first night game vs. ND a guy gave me a ticket just as game was about to kickoff for example. No way nebraska tickets will be $125,well maybe they will be but someone would be a fool to pay that.

I got tickets on StubHub in the summer, and I overpaid immensely. In my defense, I drive in from Pittsburgh, and stay the whole weekend, so I don't want to take any chances.

I have been to about 25 games in the past 15 years and I have never seen so many scalpers and low ticket prices. No exaggeration - there were easily 50 scalpers in the Crisler/Big House entrance trying to get rid of several tickets each for dirt cheap.

Also - that stadium was quite empty. There were two seats next to me empty, two seats next to my buddy were empty. There were 3 seats in front of us empty (all in section 4).

Stubhub for $27 plus fees around noon time.  There were a lot of people on Hoover Street trying to unload tickets so I am sure I could have gotten a better deal if I wanted to deal with it.

Nebraska has a big travelling contingent which will probably bid up the cost of stubhub tickets.
