Steve Spurrier’s 10th season as the head coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks was not one to remember, as the team finished only one game over .500 with their bowl game victory over Miami (FL) in the Independence Bowl.
The Gamecocks’ 7-6 overall record, including going 3-5 in the SEC, was fifth-best in a down year for the SEC Eastern division. Three historically successful SEC programs—Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina— finished with just seven wins.
This season’s schedule consists of seven home games, four road games and one neutral site game. Three of their four non-conference games will be held at home at Williams-Brice Stadium and will include a date with their in-state rival Clemson. The team’s neutral site game is against North Carolina, meanwhile. The last scheduling note is that South Carolina will host LSU for the first time since 2008.
With information provided by TiqIQ.com, lets take a look at the South Carolina games that have the highest average ticket prices on the secondary market.
Most Expensive: 10/31/2015 | Texas A&M Aggies vs. South Carolina Gamecocks | Kyle Field | Average Price: $296.63 | Get-in Price: $111
For fans from either side that are looking for early Halloween plans, Kyle Field will be the place to be. South Carolina tickets are the most expensive when they travel to play Texas A&M, the same team that crashed South Carolina’s 2014 opener. Last season, the Gamecocks opened the college football season with a No. 9 national ranking and hosted the Aggies on Thursday night in front of more than 82,000 fans. It was the first live football game broadcast on the SEC Network. A certain freshman by the name of Kenny Hill broke Johnny Manziel’s single-game passing record with 511 yards, completing 44-of-60 passes and three touchdowns. South Carolina’s 18-game home winning streak was snapped.

9/19/2015 | Georgia Bulldogs vs. South Carolina Gamecocks | Sanford Stadium | Average Price: $280.94 | Get-in Price: $120
After South Carolina dropped its home opener in 2014, the Gamecocks won their next two games at Williams-Brice Stadium, including a 38-35 win over the No. 6 ranked Georgia Bulldogs. The Gamecocks will not have the luxury of playing this one in front of their home fans this season, as they’ll have to travel to Sanford Stadium where both teams will be sporting new quarterbacks.
11/28/2015 | South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Clemson Tigers | Williams-Brice Stadium | Average Price: $268.72 | Get-in Price: $134
The only Gamecocks home game to appear is their in-state rivalry with the Clemson Tigers. Clemson has been in the national spotlight more recently than in years’ past thanks to head coach Dabo Swinney. Last season, the Tigers were victors in this Battle of the Palmetto State, as they cruised to a 35-17 win at Memorial Stadium in Clemson. Home fans attending this game will be expecting a far different result that will prove which team is the best in South Carolina.
