Tickets for Purdue Boilermakers vs Iowa Hawkeyes Going for $1.11

Purdue Iowa

The Purdue Boilermakers and Iowa Hawkeyes have both struggled through the early going of the 2013 college football season, with a combined record of 5-9 through 14 games collectively. The Hawkeyes have limped to a 4-3 start, while the Boilermakers have been flat out awful, going 1-6 through their first games and fielding one of the worst defensive units in college football.

In years’ past the matchup between these two programs has had some relevance when times are good. There’s been plenty of seasons in recent history where a matchup between Purdue and Iowa could play a big role in how the Big 10 Conference shakes out at the end of the schedule.

2013 is not one of those years, in fact, the schools must be struggling mightily to sell tickets, given the prices set for them on StubHub are almost literally a giveaway:

If you’re so desperate on Saturday, November 9th that you can’t find some nice green grass somewhere to watch grow, there’s always the option of digging into the couch cushions for that extra $1.11 to grab a ticket and make your way to Ross-Ade for what promises to be a world-class snoozefest.

If that $1.11 could be better used in a savings account, however, you may want to watch LSU/Alabama or Miami/Virginia Tech instead.

Just saying.
