There’s good news for those wanting to attend the College Football Playoff championship game between Washington and Michigan.

Now that the teams have been set, ticket prices have plummeted.

BroBible reports:

The Huskies and Wolverines came out victorious in the opening round of the CFP with each solidifying its spot in the season’s final contest. Washington took down Texas in the Sugar Bowl while Michigan outlasted Alabama in the Rose Bowl.

Both games came down to the last play.

That result might not be ideal for sellers, however.

The Longhorns and Crimson Tide each boast close proximity to Houston, as well as fanbases willing to make the short trip to NRG Stadium.

Wolverine and Husky fans, however, reside on opposite sides of the country. After paying boatloads to take in the semifinal round, they might not be eager to pay top dollar a second straight week.

With that in mind, the box office has already taken an immediate hit.

GameTime ticketing site revealed a near-$1,500 drop in ticket prices for the national title game after both Texas and Alabama were eliminated from contention.

We’re Going Down, Down, Down

The story added, “Reports claimed that prior to the Longhorns’ loss on Monday night, the lowest get-in prices sat at more than $3,500 with fees included.”

“For those who purchased early in anticipation of their team winning the first game, those price drops could be PAINFUL!” the report noted. “Noah Pransky of NBC posted that there’s been a near-50% drop on secondary markets like TicketMaster and StubHub.”

50%?!? WOW.

So if you were looking to attend the big game, it looks like your wallet might suffer less this year.
