If you’ve ever wanted to attend the College Football Playoff Championship Game in person, this might be the year to do it if you can get to Houston’s NRG Stadium for the matchup on Monday, January 8.
Because ticket prices for the Michigan Wolverines against the Washington Huskies are a fraction of what they’ve been for this game in previous years. The get-in price right now at TickPick is just $1200, a fraction of what the cost was before the Texas Longhorns were eliminated last Monday, which was around $1930.
Having the flagship school of the home state out freed up plenty of inventory, as TicketIQ.com reports prices fell 43% since Texas lost the Sugar Bowl to Washington. They also project that prices could fall as low as the $720-$730 range by just before kickoff, making attendance a relative bargain for any college football fan.
Granted that get-in price will only get you in the corner of the upper deck, and you can still spend a cool $22,000 if you want a full luxury experience from the best seat in the house. But if you just want to be in the building when the last-ever College Football Playoff is determined by just a four-team field, there’s still plenty of opportunity out there.
