Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — The wait is over for some LSU students, as dozens camped out overnight to get their hands on tickets for Saturday's big game.
The students say they might not be the front row seats they were hoping for, but it's a chance to go to one of the biggest LSU games in years.
“We'll settle for upper deck,” said LSU student Timothy Thibodeaux. “We'll be there -a lot of people can't say that - so it's all worth it.”
Student Andrew Buser agrees, “It’s probably the biggest game that LSU will be in a regular season game while I’m in school, so I'm very excited to go see it.”
This wraps up two days of tickets for LSU students. Tiger fans that wanted front row seats camped out early yesterday morning for a chance at those.
The game is officially sold out, but that doesn't mean you can't find tickets. Here's a look at some of the prices we found today.
On Craigslist, they're going for as much as $1,400.
Meanwhile, on StubHub, we found a pair of tickets for $5,500.
If you're thinking about eBay, tickets there are costing winning bidders almost $2,000.
