The No. 1 Clemson Tigers, No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide, No. 3 Michigan State Spartans, and No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners have yet to decide who will vie for the 2015-2016 College Football Playoff national championship, but we already have most of the other pertinent information for the second annual CFP title game.
Whomever prevails between the Tigers and Sooners in the Orange Bowl, and the Tide and Spartans’ matchup in the Cotton Bowl Thursday, will square off on Monday, Jan. 11 from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, for the right to be crowned this season’s champion.
Odds makers have favored SEC champion Alabama to meet Big-12 titleholder Oklahoma, but undefeated and ACC champ Clemson and Big Ten-victor Michigan State are both highly capable of making a push for the national title.
No matter the matchup, the two hopefuls will kickoff at 8:30 p.m. ET with ESPN continuing its coverage of the event after inking a 12-year, $7.3 billion rights deal before last season.
There’s an 11-day lay over between games for both the teams and their loyal, traveling fan-bases, which allows plenty of time to find and purchase tickets on the secondary market.
According to ticket website StubHub, there’s a wide variety of very expensive to still quite pricey seats available for purchase. The range begins at $708 for a spot at the Southwest Terrace Level way at the top of the stadium, and it ends at $25,000 for a place on the Southwest main level sideline just off the 40-yard line.
