The Clemson Tigers are the College Football National Champions. The Tigers posted 21 points in the fourth quarter to claim the #1 spot in the nation winning 35-31. Dabo Swinney mastermind an offense that slowly wore down the dominant Alabama defense. With a 3 point deficit, Deshain Watson led the Tigers on a final drive with two minutes left to win the title for the Tigers.
But the biggest story were the ticket prices which were the most expensive ever for a college football championship game. The average ticket price leading into the game hovered around $2,500 per ticket while the “get-in” price for a ticket was just under $2,000. The demand for the same ticket one year ago was about 25 cents on the dollar (2016 Alabama vs. Clemson in Arizona).
The rematch clearly drove the value of tickets. And people who bought early saved a ton! With the national championship game located a stone’s throw from Alabama and Clemson, prices nearly doubled the day after the teams one their respective semifinal games. And while ticket prices often drop as game day approaches, that was not the case for this game.
For Clemson fans, it was the opportunity of a lifetime to see what hadn’t been done in 111 years – beat Alabama. And fans had good reason to believe their team could get the job done with the ball in the hands of their veteran Quarterback. The Tigers delivered an experience no Clemson fan will ever forget.
