    Tickets for ISU @ KU game Jan 29

    How hard/expensive would it be to scalp tickets for this game? They're going for ~$100/each on stubhub. Could I do better scalping?

    Those $100 tickets are just for General Admission. With no assigned seats, you'll need to show up 2-3 hours before game time to stand in line so that when they open the doors to the public 1.5 hours before game time you can run for your life to try to grab a seat somewhere below the rafters. And if you want to sit down at any point in the game, I don't recommend GA tickets @ Kansas. GA stands pretty much the entire game. GA shares the same seating area as the student seating and the students will be on their feet the whole game. Kansas doesn't have a ton of scalpers at their games, so the ones that are there charge a pretty hefty sum. StubHub will be your most reliable bet.

    I would agree that Stubhub or a local ticket broker in Kansas City (Tickets for Less) might be your best option. It will be a weeknight game so it is likely that some tickets would be available. However, if I was making the trip to Lawrence (and i have on multiple occasions) I would want my tickets in hand. Long drive only to be shut out by scalpers.

    Myself and a buddy are going as well. Still without tickets in hand. I have been checking out SH and Craigslist daily. I am just wanting the best possible seat for around $150 and currently not finding much. I hope to get it handled by Monday though and am looking forward to the road trip. Hope to run into some Cyclone fans as well.

    Re: Tickets for ISU @ KU game Jan 29

    $150 doesn't go far for a KU game versus a good team. Doubt you find anything better than the top 5 rows or up in the corner sections of 2A, 9A and 13A.

    I'll keep my eyes open for y'all. If I see anything comes around on my desk, I'll let you know. Make sure to stick around AFTER the game near Iowa State locker room. CFH and players always come out and thank Clone fans!

    I've heard Lew Perkins can hook you up.
