In fact, Saturday’s night game will mark only the third time Ohio State and Notre Dame will meet on the football field. Both teams head into Saturday night undefeated and ranked in the top 10 and ticket prices are beginning to match the buzz around the game.
The cheapest tickets to get into the game are going for a whopping $878, which will mark the most expensive tickets in college football this season.
