Hello, I'm one of the moderators on the Baylor 247 site. I'm going to be in Atlanta the weekend of September 28th and want to come see a game at Georgia (never been). A buddy and I plan on getting tickets to LSU vs Georgia but in checking stubhub, seats are going for $250+ for anything decent.
Any advice on getting scalper tickets the day of the game? I don't mind paying double or triple face value for good seats. Just wanted to know based on your experiences for a marquee game like this, if I should jump on the tickets now or take my chances, come enjoy the tailgate scene and see if I can get a better price on gameday?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
Will you be donning the red and black?
(yes this is relevant)
of course- I'll be neutral. But I'll wear Georgia colors. I'm good luck for Georgia vs LSU by the way. I was there a few years back in Baton Rogue when Quincy Carter completed 21 passes in a row or something like that. Incredible game that night. I think Georgia won 34-28 or something along those lines.
I am trying to hit every major stadium in America at least once.

Come tailgate and take a chance..Our first two games will determine the price..
Hopefully they are "expensive"..That said, wear your Red and Black and mingle with the tailgaters..The Bridge is the place to buy right before gametime..If you don't score a ticket, you can watch at a tailgate site and hear the Crowd-Next best thing to being there!
Beautiful campus and the asthetics of Sanford being in the middle of campus is a thing of beauty.
yup the market is high this time of year. you're better off taking your chances.
plenty of great eateries and libation distributers downtown for before and after.
thanks appreciate the advice- that is what I will do
You will definitely be able to scalp tickets on gameday for cheaper than 250.
I'd say 100-125 a piece, with the off chance you walk into a gold mine of face value.
I would agree with these prices.
I would start looking downtown for tickets. There is a guy named 'Tiny' that always stands across the street from the Arches- can't miss him-he's about as wide as he is tall. Always carries a seating chart of the stadium with him and typically has good seats at "fair" prices. I've bought from, and sold tickets to, him in the past and he's always been legit. He also tries to unload his tickets early so he's not stuck with a bunch of tickets come kickoff.
If I were you, I would start to seriously look about 3 hours prior to kick. Best of luck to you and I hope you have a blast in our fair Classic City.
Come early and stay late.
if UGA is undefeated coming into that game. you won't be able to scalp anything lower bowl for less than 300 I would guess, unless you just find someone who has an extra ticket that doesn't believe in scalping and gives it to you for face value, which means they are actually taking a loss. As a point of fact, this exact scenario happened to me for 2004 UGA-LSU game. Sat on the 15 yard line in the lower bowl for about $40 bucks if I remember correctly. Still the loudest game I have ever attended at Sanford. However, there are plenty of great places to watch the game either at a tailgate or downtown if it doesn't work out. Too bad Farm 255 shut down. They used to show the game projected on the wall. Loved going there for away games.
The ticket market has definitely changed now that students can't easily scalp their tickets.

You'll be able to get tickets a lot easier then IMO. Especially a single. If I come up with an extra ill give you a pm.
You guys aren't taking into account that LSU fanbase travels VERY well to Athens. Like I said, if both teams are still undefeated, I think the good tickets will be hard to come by, but yes just wanting a single may help.
thanks again for the good advice guys. I'll be with another guy- so we will need 2. We will be tailgating with Georgia fans so hopefully that may help the cause and we also don't mind sitting in the upper deck. But I do remember when I was at the Georgia vs LSU game in Baton Rouge in 98 that both teams were 3-0 and I don't remember many tickets floating around prior to the game.
Maybe they (LSU) will lose to TCU and help the market some.
That 98 game was a classic 28-27 Georgia. Just looked up the box score: http://www.lsusports.net/src/data/lsu/assets/docs/fb/98stats/uga-1998.htm#GAME.NEW
I got tickets through an LSU source so I was sitting with LSU fans but there were two Georgia fans right behind us. In the closing minutes, a couple of the Georgia defensive linemen took their helmets off and started dancing to the LSU fans. The Georgia fans- dressed in Georgia gear from head to toe kept nervously saying, "Don't do that. That's not necessary..." But at least the LSU fans in the section I was in seemed to take it in stride.
Kentucky, LSU and A&M are the only SEC venues I have been to, really looking forward to seeing Georgia.
