Oklahoma Sooners a hot ticket for 2014 season, in and outside of Norman

The Oklahoma Sooners football program is one of the most popular teams in college football. With the rich history and tradition, it’s always been known around the country. The names Barry Switzer and Bob Stoops are household sports figures from California all the way to New York.

So it’s no surprise that in games where the Sooners are the visiting team, the stadium can be found full, even if the home team is not having a good season. Being able to watch Oklahoma Football makes the ticket very hot.

This upcoming season, the Oklahoma Sooners have the seventh most expensive ticket in the nation in tickets sold across the entire season, according to VividSeats.com. The median price for a single Oklahoma football game is $134. As the visiting team, the Sooners have the 9th most expensive ticket in the country.

Oklahoma is also the most popular team in road tickets sold in the Big 12. The Texas Longhorns are second, with Oklahoma State at third.

That’s some good company right there. Those teams sell the most expensive tickets because of the popularity of the school, as well as the games they have tabbed in 2014.

Keep in mind those are only the home games’ prices. When Oklahoma goes on the road, it’s a little bit of a different story. Here is the top teams that when on the road, impact the home teams’ prices the most:

Having those teams visit your stadium make your prices go up. Now, let’s look at it by conference. Visiting teams in the Big 12 that make the biggest impact to the home teams’ prices:

Whoa. As you’d expect, OU and Texas are hot sells when visiting other stadiums. But as you can see, there’s a huge gap after that. Kansas State, Iowa State, West Virginia, and Kansas actually lessen the value of those home game prices.

Here are the rest of the conferences. Same thing: Team’s impact when on the road on the home teams’ prices:
