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.
