Saturday’s Iowa-Rutgers game won’t be what you would call a scalper’s paradise.
Online ticket marketplace StubHub lists a lot of tickets for the Hawkeyes-Scarlet Knight game at under $20. The cheapest as of 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, were $13.
Compare that to Rutgers’ home games against Michigan on Oct. 8 or Penn State on Nov. 19. StubHub’s cheapest available seats for those two are $93 and $75, respectively.
If it’s any consolation to the Hawkeyes, the cheapest seats for the Nov. 5 Indiana-Rutgers tilt are a paltry $7.
Those numbers wouldn’t compute in Iowa City. The cheapest StubHub prices for the remaining Hawkeyes home games are these:
Oct. 1: Northwestern $60
Oct. 22: Wisconsin $105
Nov. 12: Michigan $164
Nov. 25: Nebraska $69
That Black Friday game with the Cornhuskers has never set off stampedes to Iowa’s ticket office. It’s a good day to watch games at home, but it doesn’t seem like the world is all that thrilled about traveling to go to them.
But $13 for Iowa-Rutgers? There’s work to be done selling Scarlet Knights football.
