Oklahoma football: Tickets to Notre Dame & Texas will cost you

Want to see OU’s biggest football games this season but don’t have tickets? Better have a padded bank account.

The Birmingham News has compiled the 30 highest-cost tickets on the secondary market for the upcoming college football season, according to TipIQ, a ticket broker.

And two Sooner games are among the five highest-priced tickets in the 2013 season, and another OU game is in the top 30.

A ticket for the OU-Notre Dame game on Sept. 28 in South Bend is going for an average of $544.30. That’s the third-highest-priced ticket. OU-Texas on Oct. 12 in Dallas is going for an average of $499.42. That’s No. 5 on the list. And Bedlam on Dec. 7 in Stillwater is going for an average of $274.76, which ranks 28th.

Now, the list seems completely legit, except for one thing. Ranking 22nd is Houston at Temple on Sept. 7 in Philadelphia. For some reason, the average price for a Houston-Temple ticket on the secondary market is $302.43, even though there won’t be 15,000 fans in Lincoln Financial Field that day.

Anyway, here is the list of the top 30:
