SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Aug 24, 2012) - With college football kicking off August 30, TicketNetwork.com has released its Top 10 list of 2012's top-selling college football teams in terms of preseason sales on the site's marketplace.
The Michigan State Spartans easily dominated the rankings, selling 52% more home game tickets than any other college football team on the TicketNetwork.com marketplace.
"It is somewhat surprising that Michigan State is the top-selling college football team on our site, especially given the big-name programs below it," said Tim Fraser, sports specialist at TicketNetwork.com. "It goes to show the passion Spartans fans have for their school and football team."
Michigan State opens its season at home in East Lansing, MI, against Boise State on August 31. The team only plays three games outside of its home state in 2012, thanks to away games against in-state rivals Central Michigan and Michigan.
The USC Trojans, who top the Associated Press' preseason poll, rank at No. 3 in college team sales on TicketNetwork.com. Multiple high-profile schools will visit USC this season, including California (Sept. 22), Oregon (Nov. 3), and Notre Dame (Nov. 24).
