The Big 12 Conference soon will be two football teams poorer, but it still commands the nation’s richest ticket prices.
Oklahoma’s game at Oklahoma State has a $125 face value, topping all others in The Oregonian’s survey of 2010 single-game ticket prices in the big six Bowl Championship Series conferences and Notre Dame. That’s up $25 from two years ago, the last time the Cowboys hosted the Sooners.
Texas vs. Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, known as the Red River Shootout, carries a price of $110. Texas A&M at Texas is $100 — the first time the Longhorns have had a $100 ticket, much less two — as is Nebraska at Oklahoma State. Texas at Texas Tech rounds out the national top five at $98.
