/> And last season's Michigan at Ohio State game had average tickets going for more than $1,200.

OU-Texas tickets usually go for more than $400.

But since TicketsNow started tracking college football ticket sales five years ago, OU-Miami is one of the highest-selling tickets in Norman.

The average ticket for OU-UCLA in 2003 went for $265. In 2004, OU-Nebraska tickets went on average for $252.

But OU spokesman Kenny Mossman said the school's ticket managers have indicated that demand for Miami is rivaled only by the 2000 Nebraska showdown, when both Big 12 rivals entered the game undefeated. Then, the stadium had about 9,000 fewer seats, suggesting that this is the biggest home game for ticket sales since coach Bob Stoops arrived in 1999.

"You always want it to be big,” said Daniel, who expects scalpers to make at least twice as much Saturday than in last weekend's season opener against North Texas. "Is OU-Miami big?

"Absolutely.”
