Saturday’s Big 12 title game between Oklahoma and Texas is officially sold out, per an announcement from the conference.
It’s no surprise that demand for this game was high — this will be the first time Oklahoma and Texas face off twice in the same season since 1903, and a trip to a New Year’s Six bowl game (and maybe the playoff) is on the line. The Longhorns won the matchup in October 48-45.
The universities were only allotted 8,000 seats each, which caused many fans and season ticket holders to be priced out.
Here’s the response from Oklahoma’s senior AD for external operations, Kenny Mossman:
The increase in demand for tickets due to a rivalry rematch is also being felt on the secondary market. According to StubHub, ticket sales are up 160 percent on last year’s game, which featured the Sooners and TCU.
Kickoff is slated for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1.
