Bowl Ticket Prices 2018New Years Six

The New Years Six is where the height of college bowl game action. Here, we spotlight the key matchups taking place and why theyre worth paying attention to in particular.

Fiesta Bowl

LSU Tigers vs UCF Knights

State Farm Stadium

Glendale, Arizona

January 1st, 2019

Ticket Price: $14 (Entry), $76 (Average)

Fiesta Bowl Game Preview

The UCF Knights have the longest win streak in the country at 25. LSU hopes to end that streak when the two teams kick off at the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl on January 1st. The Knights undefeated reign began in 2017 with their 13-0 record and was extended in 2018 with their 12-0 record.

For LSU to deliver UFCs first loss in two years would be one of the highlights of the teams history, and of course, a total rush for audiences both at the game and watching from home.

Sugar Bowl

Texas Longhorns vs Georgia Bulldogs

Mercedes-Benz Superdome

New Orleans, Louisiana

January 1, 2019

Ticket Price: $81 (Entry), $214 (Average)

Sugar Bowl Game Preview

Lets put the Longhorns under the spotlight. Theyre going up against the Bulldogs, and its their first appearance in a New Years Six bowl since they played the Alabama Crimson Tide in 2010 at the Rose Bowl. Whats interesting about Texas making appearances in the bowl games is what becomes of them in the following seasons - they go on to bigger and better things.

QBs such as Vince Young (2004 Rose Bowl) and Colt McCoy (2008 Fiesta Bowl) were both Heisman finalists, leading the team to Big-12 Championship games and the BCS National Championship game. Will Sam Ehlingers appearance at the Sugar Bowl take the Longhorns to the national stage next year? With the assistance of talented players like running back Keaontay Ingram, its possible that the Longhorns will make an impact in 2019.

If they beat the Bulldogs, theyll gain the momentum needed to build a more formidable team in the off-season.

Orange Bowl

Oklahoma Sooners vs Alabama Crimson Tide

Hard Rock Stadium

Miami Gardens, Florida

December 29, 2018

Ticket Price: $163 (Entry), $410 (Average)

Orange Bowl Game Preview

The Oklahoma Sooners-Alabama Crimson Tide matchup is definitely one of the most anticipated games this year. With that said, part of the Orange Bowls excitement comes from the Heisman Trophy drama that stirred some emotions among the league and the fans on social media.

The main headline here, of course, surrounds the fact that Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray won the trophy instead of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the season favorite. Were expecting this snub to give the Crimson Tide plenty of motivation to prove themselves, namely, Tagovailoa.

This match could be Murrays last college football game as he may be destined for the MLB - the Oakland Athletics selected him as the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB draft.

This will be the seventh bowl that pits the Heisman winner against the runner-up, and has the potential to be the most heated. Both quarterbacks will play to prove their ranks - that either Murray is worth the Heisman Trophy or that Tagovailoa was snubbed.

Peach Bowl

Florida Gators vs Michigan Wolverines

Mercedes-Benz Superdome

New Orleans, Louisiana

December 29, 2018

Ticket Price: $85 (Entry), $179 (Average)

Peach Bowl Game Preview

They say good things come in threes and this matchup between the Gators and the Wolverines is no exception. This is the third matchup between the two teams in four years, so the tension and rivalry runs high.

Were looking forward to seeing the showdown between Gators quarterback, Feleipe Franks, and Wolverine quarterback, Shea Patterson. Both of these young stars are matching each other with comparable numbers - Franks has 2,284 yards, 23 touchdowns and six interceptions while Patterson has 2,364 yards, 21 touchdowns and five interceptions.

Michigan took home the last two wins against the Gators, making the southerners even more eager to avenge those losses and prevent win #3. Michigan also wants to reposition themselves as a dominant force after losing to Ohio State 62-39. They will have to do this without defensive end, Rashan Gary.

Cotton Bowl Classic

Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs Clemson Tigers

AT&T Stadium

Arlington, Texas

December 29, 2018

Ticket Price: $244 (Entry), $407 (Average)

Cotton Bowl Game Preview

Both Notre Dame and Clemson recently returned to the field in preparation for their December 29th matchup. The Tigers are expected to come out with the victory - an 11 point favorite, per OddsShark.

Both Notre Dame and Clemson strong defensive lines, but Clemson has the advantage here offensively, ranking 5th overall in total offense with an average of 530 yards per game. They also rank 5th in scoring offense, averaging more than 45 points per game.

Clemson also has the upper hand in terms of experience. Unlike the Fighting Irish, most of the players on the squad at least one playoff game under their belts.

What were most excited for, as many of you probably are, is the fact that both teams are undefeated (the Tigers are 13-0, Fighting Irish 12-0). There hasnt been a matchup of undefeated teams in the Cotton Bowl since 1948.

Rose Bowl

Washington Huskies vs Ohio State Buckeyes

Rose Bowl

Pasadena, California

January 1, 2019

Ticket Price: $249 (Entry), $468 (Average)

Rose Bowl Game Summary

Its the Huskies going up against the Buckeyes in The Granddaddy of Them All. Regardless of the outcome here, it will be a tough end for Ohio State this year considering the fact that they fell short of the College Football Playoff and also saying goodbye to coach Urban Meyer. But the Buckeyes will bounce back and their top performers cant be ignored such as Heisman Trophy finalist, quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

As for Washington, theyre riding high after their second Pac-12 Championship. For their offense, theyve got four-year starter Jake Browning and all-time leading rusher Myles Gaskin. Theyre also not too shabby in scoring defense, ranking fifth in the FBS (15.5).
