    I should preface this by saying I've never tried to buy tickets from scalpers so I don't know how it will work. A group of 4 of us are going to drive up to try our luck with them but I don't think there will be many tickets available because 1) Its the biggest game in years at Hilton and 2) Scalpers can't get more than face value around Hilton. Should we even bother making the drive? We don't really want to spend $50-$60 a ticket beforehand either

    I'm sure your group could find tickets, but probably not for much less than 50 given KU on Big Monday.

    If you don't have to sit together I'd say you can find singles for $30

    Finding seats together is going to cost you $100 plus a seat.

    Not sure where you are getting that they can't sell for more than face... Why don't you look to get them on via the ticket exchange on cycones.com? There were some there that I felt were reasonably priced considering...

    Baylor tickets were going for $100 each a couple weeks ago.

    False. They can charge well over, and this is the highest priced (aftermarket) game of the year, almost every year.

    Parquet will be at least $100 plus Monday, if not more. They have been going from the scalper for $75/all conference.

    Maybe buy the tickets more than 3 days before the biggest game in Hilton every year?

    Eh, I wouldn't call it the biggest game IN YEARS. Maybe you meant biggest game of THE year?

    & yeah, good luck getting 4 together for $60/per.

    This. Not to be a debbie downer, but to get that many together you are probably going to have to pay enough to convince someone that it is better for them to watch from home than to go.......which for this game is going to be A LOT.

    Here is an ad for a couple tickets. Looks to have four in a group for 60 a piece. Full disclosure, this is my brothers ad. He was in charge of buying the tix for a whole group and had some cancelations. I think the lack of ISU fans in the cedar valley is hurting him trying to move these. I know he will be in Ames early Monday. I can help anyone get the tickets if need be.

    The traveling KU fans drive up the cost. This year their KU team must win to be league champions. Expect high prices.
