UConn/Michigan tickets in high demand

According to the site, the average ticket price of $144 for tomorrow's UConn/Michigan is the highest for any UConn home game.

The previous high was $68 per ticket for the 2010 game against West Virginia. Here's some of the highlights courtesy of an email I received this morning.

At an average ticket price of $144, this is the most in-demand Huskies home game ever. In fact, it is more than twice as expensive as any other UConn home game, including the Huskies' 2010 game against West Virginia ($68 average ticket price), which previously held the title. Activity on the secondary market is also at a record high for a UConn game, as twice as many tickets have already changed hands for this game as for any other Huskies game we've tracked.
Demand for this game is also 32 percent higher than for the 2011 Fiesta Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, which featured UConn and Oklahoma. The average ticket price for that BCS bowl game was $109.
This game ranks as the second-most expensive sporting event in the state of Connecticut that we've ever tracked, behind only the UConn men's basketball team's 2012 game against Syracuse ($174 average ticket price).
The Wolverines' visit to Rentschler Field is by far the Huskies' biggest draw of the season. The average ticket price of $144 for this Michigan matchup is six times the average ticket price of UConn's other six home games this year ($24), including a meeting on November 8th with No. 7 Louisville. Seats for that Cardinals-Huskies game are selling for $30 per ticket on the secondary market.
Demand is at an all-time high for a UConn home game despite the Huskies' disappointing start to the season. In fact, we would have expected to see an even higher average ticket price for this game had UConn not suffered disappointing home losses to Towson and Maryland over the past few weeks. The average ticket price for the Michigan game has fallen 16 percent from $172 the day before the Towson loss to its current value of $144.
Right now on SeatGeek, the cheapest seats available for this game are $88 per ticket in Section 117, but we've seen front-row seats sell for as much as $565 per ticket. All the latest information on ticket prices and availability can be found on SeatGeekā€™s event page for the game:
