Michigan and Michigan State set to do battle for Big Ten Legends supremacy

Michigan and Michigan State both enter this week as one loss teams and the only ranked teams in the Big Ten Legends division. After this week, one of these teams will have the inside track on facing Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship Game for a berth in the Rose Bowl.

With so much at stake in the Big Ten, it is no surprise that this contest is the single most expensive game of the weekend in college football. Despite a 17% decline in ticket prices over the past week, this game still carries an average tag of $237 dollars, to go along with a get-in price of $111.

Still, these lofty ticket prices register below the tag set by last year’s meet in Ann Arbor by 7%. Fans will find it to be an even bigger discount from when the Wolverines and Spartans last met at Michigan State in 2011, with this year’s average ticket price of $237 checking in 25% below the 2011 figure.

Relative to this year’s ticket prices however, fans will find this to be one of the most expensive games of the season for either team. With a 119% premium to the average Michigan State football tickets at home this year, Spartan fans are paying a pretty penny to get into this week’s contest. But while the Wolverines are always a big road draw as a result of the widespread Michigan fan base, this game still checks in 25% above the average price of Michigan football tickets on the road this season.
