Michigan State and Ohio State. Two of the most well known schools both with passionate fan bases in all of the Big Ten will get together for the final regular season game of the year this Sunday in Columbus. Michigan State started off the year strong winning 18 of their first 19 games, even beating then #3 Ohio State at home in overtime. Since that game things haven’t gone as smoothly as both teams would have hoped as Ohio State went on to lose four of their next five while the Spartans have dropped seven of their past eleven. These teams now are no where near the top to the rankings where they once sat with Michigan State dropping to #22 and Ohio State falling out of the rankings completely.
When Ohio State plays Michigan State this Sunday it will be the last chance they have to move up in the seeding for the Big Ten tournament which begins next Thursday, March 13th. Big Ten Tournament tickets are going for $449 for an All Sessions strip but are averaging $118 per game with the Championship Game coming in at an average ticket price of $96. In comparison when these two teams met for the Big Ten Championship in football last year tickets were going for less than an All Session’s ticket averaging $245 with a Get-in of $121.
Currently Michigan State is the #3 seed in the Big Ten Tournament while the Buckeyes are the #6 seed, but with a win and some help they could move up to the #4 seed and earn a first round by in the Big Ten Tournament. Michigan State tickets for their regular season finale are presently averaging $98 but if you act now you can Get-in for $40 after Ohio State tickets have dropped by one quarter over the past week.
