    Default 3,935 tickets remaining vs Nebraska -- here's a breakdown by Zone

    It's fairly easy to scrape the Gophers ticketing website to determine how many tickets are remaining for a given game. I have a rooted interest in the Nebraska game and I have been tracking closely, so I figured I'd share. Here's the data.

    If anyone is interested in the breakdown for a different game just let me know and I can pull that as well.

    Note: the slight upticks you'll see in a given zone from one date to another is simply the ticket office releasing inventory previously held back for season ticket sales. I don't think they've released more than a few hundred seats total so I don't think it materially affects the data.

    Interesting to note here that there has been virtually no movement at the $200+ price point (Zones 1, 2, 3 and 21 (outdoor club)), so one could argue that the ticket office has overpriced this inventory.

    They seem to be consistently overpricing "premium" inventory in my opinion, as many games seem to have open seats at the 50 even when the corners are fairly full.

    I'm guessing this is going to be a very popular trip for the Husker fans.

    In my opinion, it seems the U ticket office constantly overprices what they perceive as premium events (see men’s hockey vs UND as another example) which leads to more of of town visiting fans (if you were coming from Nebraska for a $50 ticket, you’d still come for $100 as it is not as significant of a shift in total price point for your trip). It seems this is how the U is comfortable making its money

    It wasn’t two years ago - announced attendance was only 40K for the 2017 Nebraska game at TCF.

    This is a game that I have been considering going to for awhile, but I don't think I am willing to pay the current prices for it. It's not quite as outrageous as ticket prices for the Vikings' games, but $300-$400 for 3 tickets in the endzone or corners (at best) seems pretty high to me.

    True - but they hadn't had the second coming of Frost yet...

    Let’s hope Gophers fans show up because Nebraska fans travel really well. Huskers outnumbered Colorado fans at Colorado a couple weeks ago.
    I'm all about the Pick 6!!

    I'm selling 2 seats in Section 148 (endzone) on the aisle. PM me your price if interested.

    "3,935 tickets remaining vs Nebraska -- here's a breakdown by Zone"

    If there are only 3,955 tickets remaining for a game that is still almost a month off, well... it seems to me that's a pretty good sign. Maybe interest in the program is ticking up.

    This is just on the gopher ticketing website, what about 3rd party vendors? Are there tickets on those still?
