NORMAN — When Oklahoma and Texas take the field every October, the result is usually a fat payday for Web sites that charge more than face value for admission to the rivalry game. But a big "2” in the Sooners’ loss column has made that payday a bit more slender this season. Texas-Oklahoma tickets are one of the premier tickets of the scalper’s season. But after OU lost to Miami, ticket supply on the ticket search engine FanSnap.com went up from 5,800 listings to 7,100 listings in just days. As a result, the average price dropped. In late September, a ticket to the annual Big 12 South matchup cost an average of $530. Monday morning, the mean was $375. "Oklahoma’s two losses are making it a bit easier to get in this year,” Nichole Rozendaal said in an e-mail. Rozendaal works for FanSnap.com, which collects ticket information from over 50 local and national online brokers. Five days before the game, there are still 5,000 tickets available online, with the lowest-priced tickets at around $175. Texas fan Sam Melendrez wants one of those tickets, but posted an ad on Craigslist, the online classifieds Web site, in hopes of seeing a fourth Longhorn win in five seasons at the Texas State Fair. "I go every year,” said the 39-year old salesman from Dallas. In his ad, Melendrez says he’s willing to pay $125 for a ticket. "I’d pay double that if they were both undefeated,” he said. "But this year, there’s no interest from OU’s fan base. They don’t care about going because they know they can’t win the national championship.” The highest-priced tickets on StubHub.com, a premium ticket site, are set at $2,800, which seemed more reasonable in August, when both teams were in college football’s top three. Less than two months later, although sold out, the epic sequel to the two teams’ 45-35 duel a season ago has only a fraction of the intrigue it once did.
