The Alabama Crimson Tide (4-1), who ranked No. 7 in the most recent AP Poll, are coming off a disappointing 23-17 road loss to the Mississippi Rebels. Alabama’s defense yielded two fourth quarter touchdowns as Mississippi defeated Alabama for the first time in ten years. Quarterback Blake Sims struggled in the loss, completing just 61 percent of his passes for 229 yards and no touchdowns. Sims continued to feed wide receiver, Amari Cooper, who hauled in nine passes for 90 yards. Cooper, however, was unable to find the end zone for the first time in nearly a month. Alabama’s rushing attack totaled 168 yards, which was below its season average. Alabama will have to bounce back on the road against the run-heavy Arkansas Razorbacks (3-2). Arkansas’s fans are paying average ticket price for this showdown.
According to TiqIQ, the average price for Arkansas vs Alabama football tickets is currently $91.31 on the secondary market, while the get-in price for the game is $26. Arkansas’s season average ticket price is $97.44, making this game surprisingly 6% below the season average.
Two weeks ago, Arkansas dropped a close 35-28 decision in overtime to the Texas A&M Aggies at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. Arkansas ran for 285 yards and three touchdowns in the loss. Arkansas is averaging 316.6 rushing yards per game, which is the seventh highest amount in college football. Alabama limited Mississippi to just 2.3 yards per carry last week and boasts one of the best defenses in college football.
Fans will pay below average ticket prices to see whether Arkansas can avenge last year’s embarrassing 52-0 defeat. Arkansas rushed for just 165 yards and was only able to muster 91 passing yards against Alabama’s top defense. Expect Arkansas to play passionately in front of their fans against one of the nation’s best programs.
