College students are of course, tempted by money, and selling your seat to the country’s most expensive college football game of the season for enough cash to pay rent and utilities for a few months is what college students crave. But for Texas A&M Students, selling that Alabama vs Texas A&M ticket will come at a very large price for those who get caught. Reselling a student ticket for profit is prohibited and carries harsh penalties including the possibility of losing tickets for the entire season. As of late Monday evening, some students were already caught and are now dealing with the consequences. An average price for the rematch this Saturday is about $745 according to Vivid Seats. That price is just about 35% higher than the LSU vs Alabama game in November which now is averaged at $550 per ticket. What’s a college student to do?  Many in College Station are telling students four simple words: Do Not Risk It. A senior associate AD and Texas A&M said that tickets for the game this Saturday were voided for two students already caught after attempting to sell designated student section tickets online. Those students, have lost privileges for the rest of the season. Aggie Students who buy a football only pass bay $225 for their eight home games ($28.12 per ticket) where as at Alabama, students pay $70 for seven home games ($10 a ticket). Aggie students who purchase an all sports option is $350. That allows students to attend every home sporting event. At Alabama, every sport besides football, is free with a valid student ID. That $225 may be a shocking number to any Alabama student reading this. But Aggie Student Ticket prices are considerably lower than regular tickets thanks to numerous donors and season ticket owners. Take Our Poll “Obviously we want to protect their investment in the student body,” said the associate AD,  ”We want as many Aggies in Kyle Field as possible for the game this Saturday against Alabama. Coach [Kevin] Sumlin and the football team are depending on the 12th Man to provide a significant home-field advantage, and it would be extremely disappointing to see Alabama fans standing underneath the ‘Home of the 12th Man’ sign.” A&M faculty and staff continue to monitor websites such as StubHub, Ticketmaster, and Craigslist to ensure students are not selling their ticket. More than 50 accounts on Stubhub are currently being “investigated”. Aggie students began camping outside Kyle Field on Sunday and as of late Monday, 15,000 student tickets have been claimed out of the 31,000 student tickets allotted. Texas A&M officials took to twitter to make sure the severity of selling their tickets was made clear. Texas A&M officials took to social media websites such as Twitter to get the point across as well. Students, you risk voided tickets, revocation of current sports option, & no option again for your career. DON'T RISK IT. — Aggie Tickets (@AggieTickets) September 9, 2013
