Building on the strength of ticket sales to Aggies home games throughout the latter part of the season – and, in particular, after Texas A&M downed then-No. 1 Alabama on the road in Tuscaloosa on Nov. 10 – the average cost Cotton Bowl tickets ranks second to only the BCS National Championship at $504 a ticket ($185 on the low end) and is currently receiving the highest asking price since 2011’s pairing of Texas A&M and LSU. 2012’s Cotton Bowl saw an average price of admission of $289 dollars, 43% less than this year’s game.
Surprisingly, ticket prices to the 2013 Cotton Bowl have fallen some 14 percent over the last two weeks, but should rebound quickly following the Christmas holiday, especially with Arlington a reachable drive (184 miles) for Texas A&M faithful residing in College Station.
The Sooners, currently 27-17-1 in bowl games and making their first appearance in the Cotton Bowl since 2001, will be trying to match a school record with a fourth-straight bowl win.
The Aggies, meanwhile, will be playing in their 13th Cotton Bowl, and look to improve upon a post-season win-loss record of 14-19.
