The Rose Bowl matchup of the Iowa Hawkeyes and Stanford Cardinal is certainly one of the most anticipated bowl games this year. The two teams had improbable seasons that ended with a pairing of two top ten powerhouses in Pasadena.
The Rose Bowl committee must know that both teams are going to travel very well for the New Year’s Day matchup and it is reflected in the ticket prices.
According to SB Nation, the cheapest price for tickets found on StubHub for the Rose Bowl was $518, three times more expensive than any other bowl game this year. The next closest bowl game in price is the Orange Bowl which serves as one of the national semifinal games in the College Football Playoff.
Those tickets are running at a low price of $147.
While many might not take that as a “low price”, it is certainly cheaper than the Rose Bowl. Despite the price, the Hawkeye fans should travel well considering more than 50,000 fans flooded Lucas Oil Stadium for the Big Ten Championship game last week.
