Ohio State-Northwestern Game Sells Out, Spurring Ticket Demand
Northwestern says that tickets have sold out for Saturday's home game against Ohio State, "forcing many to turn to the resale market." On StubHub, the "cheapest seats" on Thursday night were going for nearly $200, "with seats on the 50-yard line on the Northwestern sideline going for around $300." StubHub spokesperson Shannon Barbara said, "It's our highest-selling Northwestern home game ever." Demand for the game nationally is "eclipsed only by the Arizona State-Notre Dame clash at AT&T Stadium." ESPN's "College GameDay" this weekend will air from Evanston (CHICAGOGRID.com, 10/4).
