College football fans appear to be sick of the match-up as ticket prices for the game are falling rapidly.After opening with a face value of $475, prices have dropped to $135 on the secondary market. Popular e-ticketing site StubHub has title game tickets available for just $115.While the match-up might be stale, there are a multitude of factors to the decreased ticket sales. TicketIQ founder Jesse Lawrence spoke with ESPN and suggested the location of Monday night’s game – Santa Clara – is also a major factor.“It’s sort of a perfect storm of factors at play this year. It’s a big ask for fans to come, and that’s why we’re seeing the prices the way they are.”Clemson and Alabama sit an average of 2,428 miles away from Santa Clara, which makes it difficult – and expensive – for fans to get there.Alabama and Clemson kick off at 8:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.last_img
