There are four SEC teams within the top-15 for best odds to win the second-ever College Football Playoff, and the LSU Tigers are one of them.
Les Miles’ club is currently listed at 28-1 to take home the crown jewel of college football, behind three teams at 25-1—the Michigan State Spartans, Florida State Seminoles and Notre Dame Fighting Irish—and in front of Clemson, which is listed at 30-1.
The other SEC teams listed in the top-15 in terms of odds for winning the national championship are Alabama, Auburn and Georgia.
After a disappointing season that fell apart after their first loss, LSU is primed to have one of the best defenses in the country, sprinkled with just enough playmakers to be true contenders for a spot in the College Football Playoff. Below are some of the key dates for the upcoming season and LSU tickets on the secondary market for those games, per TiqIQ.com.
11/7/2015 | Alabama Crimson Tide vs. LSU Tigers | Bryant-Denny Stadium | Average Price: $343.80| Get-in Price: $171
9/19/2015 | LSU Tigers vs. Auburn Tigers | Tiger Stadium | Average Price: $230.98 | Get-in Price: $106

As SEC fans could’ve guessed, the LSU Tigers’ most expensive game on the secondary market is against the Alabama Crimson Tide in early November. This year’s contest will take place at Bryant-Denny Stadium, and figures to be the most difficult contest of LSU’s season. Supporting the Tigers on the road at one of the toughest environments in college football is a few clicks away on Hipmunk.com, where Tuscaloosa hotels are starting from $49 per night.
The Tigers’ most expensive home game is against… the Tigers from Auburn. Most probably, Auburn figures to have the strongest chance to snag one of the CFP spots. Hipmunk also provides flights to Baton Rouge for fans looking to visit campus for a Tigers home game throughout the season.
Finally, the third-most expensive game is against the Ole Miss Rebels at Vaught Hemingway Stadium, having an average ticket price of $215.57 and a get-in price of $92. If LSU earns a spot into the CFP in the upcoming campaign, they will have earned it with this remarkably tough schedule on tap.
