No. 4: Nebraska Cornhuskers. The average ticket price is $210. After a disappointing blowout in the BigTEN championship game last season, the Huskers dropped 3 spots in our top 25 from their #1 preseason rank in each of the last two years.  Despite being down 20% from last year, Nebraska Cornhuskers tickets are still only of five teams with an average price above $200, at $210.  On September 14th, the Cornhuskers face UCLA for the 12th time in history in their most expensive game of the year. At an average price of $310, prices for this game are almost double their cheapest game of the year against Southern Miss, which have an average price of $165.

The Nebraska Twitter account caught our attention this morning when they tweeted a few photos of a LEGO model of Memorial Stadium that a Huskers fan had created.

Take a look:

About 15 minutes later, a college football fan named Brett Thiessen sent along a link to his online store where he’s selling a number of LEGO replicas of popular college football stadiums from around the country, including Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium.

In addition to Nebraska, Thiessen has also assembled LEGO designs of Michigan Stadium, USC’s LA Memorial Coliseum, Auburn’s Jordan Hare Stadium, Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium, Georgia’s Sanford Stadium and Oklahoma’s Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium.

He’s selling these for $400. That may seem a little steep, but you would definitely be the only person at the next tailgate with this piece of memorabilia.
