AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas Longhorns football is a hot ticket heading into the 2019 season, according to StubHub.

On Tuesday, StubHub released its insights on the top-trending teams, hottest-selling games and most popular conferences, based off the company’s current ticket sales.

Two games involving the Longhorns rank at the top of the list.

  • The Texas-LSU game Sept. 7 in Austin is currently college football’s top-selling game for the entire season.
  • The Red River Rivalry between Texas and Oklahoma ranks as the most anticipated rivalry game, the secondary ticket marketplace says.

As of Tuesday, the cheapest ticket for the Longhorns match-up with LSU is nearly $316 for an upper level seat around the 15-yard line. The most expensive ticket is $2,159 for a spot in the Centennial Club.

The cheapest seat at the Cotton Bowl for the Red River Rivalry is currently $308 in row 45 of the end zone. If you want to sit at the 50-yard line on the front row, it’ll cost you $1,860 per ticket.

StubHub says the Longhorns made the biggest jump in demand among the Top 10 teams, with ticket sales up 160% from last season.
