Clemson-Florida State Matchup Priciest Regular Season ACC Ticket
With an undefeated Clemson team playing host to Florida State this weekend, tickets to Saturday’s game are reselling for an average of $202 on the secondary market. That’s the second most expensive Clemson game this year, behind the October 3 Notre Dame game that averaged $256.
If the matchup weren’t hot enough already, on Tuesday night the CFP gave Clemson the number one ranking, which led to a thirteen percent increase in the median listing price the following day.

Because of this, Saturday will be this season’s most expensive regular season ACC game, easily beating out the recent FSU – Georgia Tech game that averaged $145. In fact, the November 7 game will also be more expensive than any ACC Championship Game in the SeatGeek database, which goes back to 2010.
Since 2010, only one Clemson – Florida State game has been more expensive on the secondary market: the October 2013 game in Clemson averaged $226. In the past six seasons, the three Clemson – FSU matchups at Clemson have all been more expensive than the three matchups in Tallahassee.
Clemson home tickets are averaging $109 on the secondary market this season. Through this point in the season, that’s the most expensive they have been in the past six years:

Before Florida State’s stunning loss to Georgia Tech on October 24, when it appeared that Saturday’s game might feature two unbeaten teams, the median listing price was $332. It has since dropped to $224 — that’s a thirty three percent decrease over the span of three weeks.
Saturday’s game is more expensive than any Florida State home game of the past four seasons. We have to go back to September of 2011 to find a more expensive FSU game, a matchup against the Oklahoma Sooners that averaged $215.
