NBC NEWS — The game tomorrow is officially sold out, but you can still get tickets on line. NBC33 checked out a few different sites to see how much tickets are going for.
Craigslist had tickets for the SEC championship game for as high as $500.
That's not bad, compared to the $750 asking price we found on eBay.
StubHub has tickets as well, some as high as $900.
Even though you can by tickets from these services, SEC officials are warning you to be on the lookout for fake tickets to Saturday's title game.
Officials say the game is officially sold out, which means you need to be on alert if you buy a ticket from places like Craigslist and eBay.
If you try to use a fake ticket to get into the Georgia Dome, you'll be turned away.
The SEC is providing a ticket validation window at the dome. That's the only sure-fire way to know if the ticket you're holding is real.
