TicketCity Highlights Key Games and Ticket Demand after Bowl Game Announcement

AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--

After a season full of dramatic and surprising outcomes for college football games, this season's top bowl game match-ups are drawing heavy demand. TicketCity, a leader in the secondary ticket industry for more than 22 years, details all bowl ticket prices for the 2012-2013 season, along with some key games not to be missed.

The BCS National Championship game will match the #1 Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide. Notre Dame enters the contest undefeated with impressive victories over Michigan, Stanford, Oklahoma, and USC. The Irish are led by Senior Linebacker Manti Te'o, who looks to become the first exclusively defensive player to win the Heisman Trophy. The #2 Alabama Crimson Tide roll into the national title game despite a late season loss to Texas A&M. Junior Quarterback AJ McCarron and Running Back Eddie Lacy look to lead Alabama to their second straight National Championship. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $3,207 however TicketCity.com currently offers tickets to this must-see game starting at $1,146.

The Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, Arizona will feature two former #1 teams - the Oregon Ducks and the Kansas State Wildcats. The #5 Ducks come into the contest with a bitter taste in their mouth after a disappointing loss to Stanford in Week 12, which knocked them out of title game contention. Quarterback Marcus Mariota has been impressive along with standout Running Back Kenjon Barner. The #6 Kansas State Wildcats also controlled their own destiny before a loss to Baylor late in the season. Junior Quarterback Collin Klein is still a Heisman contender and the Wildcats will certainly finish the season a top-10 team. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $247 however TicketCity.com currently offers tickets starting at $105.

The 99th edition of The Rose Bowl game will spotlight the #6 Stanford Cardinal and the Big Ten Champion, Wisconsin Badgers. Stanford, champions of the Pac-12, defeated USC, Oregon State, Oregon, and UCLA twice to earn a trip to Pasadena. Senior Running Back Stepfan Taylor who has rushed for over 1,400 yards this season leads the Cardinal. Despite five losses, the Wisconsin Badgers find themselves back in the Rose Bowl game for the third year in a row. Wisconsin earned their trip to Pasadena by trouncing Nebraska 70-31. The Badgers are led by Senior Running Back and All-Time Leader in Touchdowns for a career Montee Ball. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $432 however TicketCity.com currently offers tickets starting at $195.

One of the most intriguing non-BCS bowl games will be played at Dallas Cowboys Stadium. The Cotton Bowl will feature the #9 Texas A&M Aggies and the #11 Oklahoma Sooners. The Aggies enter the contest as one of college football's hottest teams having defeated #1 Alabama in Week 11. Freshman sensation Johnny Manziel leads the Aggies into Arlington, having accounted for 4,600 yards and 43 total touchdowns. For the Sooners, Senior Quarterback Landry Jones leads the team with over 3,700 yards and 27 touchdowns. The average ticket price on the secondary market is $501 however TicketCity.com currently offers tickets starting at $173.
