Prices Rising for Wolverines-Spartans Clash
With an average resale price of $252 a ticket, this weekend’s Michigan-Michigan State showdown is set to be the most expensive matchup between the teams since 2010, when we started tracking the secondary market. The previous high was the 2012 matchup in Ann Arbor, which had an average resale price of $249.
Interestingly, while this game is a very hot ticket, it is not even the most expensive Michigan home game this year. That distinction belongs to the November matchup with Ohio State, which has an average resale price of $273 a ticket.
