The No. 14 Tigers, 6-0, are playing their first Southeastern Conference home game of the season against the No. 22 Gators and the average ticket price for ticket resellers has rocketed over $100.
The Missouri/Florida game is the ninth-hottest college football of the week, according to Ticket City.
The average ticket costs $102.63 on its secondary market with a starting price of $56.
Four of the eight games with a higher average ticket price are also SEC affairs — Auburn at Texas A&M (third), Arkansas at Alabama (fifth), LSU at Mississippi (sixth) and South Carolina at Tennessee (eighth).
USC at Notre Dame has the highest average ticket price at $191.61, but some vendors are willing to part with tickets for as little as $18, while Florida State’s top-five showdown at Clemson ranks second ($165.40).
