Hokies-Huskers an Expensive Ticket

With No. 19 Nebraska coming to Lane Stadium to play No. 13 Virginia Tech on Saturday, there is excitement in Blacksburg about the matchup of two ranked opponents.

The numbers provide the evidence.

On Wednesday, the average ticket price of tickets reselling online was $270 through FanSnap.com. There were only 177 tickets still reselling on the site.

FanSnap aggregates tickets being resold online from a number of sources, including StubHub.com and eBay.com. It lists the available tickets but does not set the prices.

Some of the highest-priced tickets listed on the site exceeded $500 for lower-level seats, while there were less-desirable seats being resold for $150. The average price of tickets for the Nebraska-Virginia Tech peaked in July, at $383, according to Nichole Rozendaal, a spokeswoman for FanSnap.

Virginia Tech was the eighth-most searched college football ticket on the site. Nebraska was 20th.
