Outside of four conference titles between 1926 and 1936, Northwestern football spent decades experiencing one losing season after another. But all of that changed in 1995 under head coach Gary Barnett. The Wildcats began that season with a stunning victory over no. 9 Notre Dame despite winning three games or less in each of the previous eight seasons. They would go on to beat three more ranked teams that year, winning the Big Ten outright with an 8-0 conference record and a 10-1 record during the regular season. That magical season earned Northwestern an improbable trip to the Rose Bowl. As an encore, the Wildcats won a share of the Big Ten the following year, finishing the season 9-3 and playing in the Citrus Bowl.
Northwestern ticket prices will differ depending on a number of factors. Generally speaking, the average ticket price for Northwestern tickets is around $46 a ticket. But you can be looking at a few hundred dollars more, depending on the opponent, stage of play, and demand.
But if there was one silver lining in the embarrassment for Northwestern, it was that the athletic department realized a major flaw in how it sold tickets. While the game did sell out, season ticket holders were able to purchase extra tickets before the general public was, and sensing demand from Nebraska fans, they bought the tickets up at discounted prices and flooded the secondary market. While many sellers anticipated that they could make big bucks off their unused tickets, the flooded market caused the lowest ticket prices to drop below $20 by the day before the game, while tickets for that caliber of a game would generally cost $70.
This signaled two things to the athletic department: The first was that they needed to change their policy that allowed season ticket holders to buy unlimited extra tickets. The second was that they were selling tickets far below what the market would have paid for them.
The answer was a new system called Purple Pricing. The idea was that prices would start high, and they would fall in accordance with demand and the secondary market. Unlike dynamic pricing, where prices can rise and fall and customers are stuck with the price they pay, tickets under the \"Purple Pricing\" plan would only fall, and customers would be refunded to pay the lowest possible price. The concept is similar to a Dutch Auction. The system debuted for two games during the 2012-13 basketball season, and it opened for select, high-demand football games starting in 2013.
The plan in short To either make a lot of money off opposing fans, or keep them out of the stadium. And this year, it worked pretty well this time around. The school released roughly 5,000 to 10,000 tickets for Saturday's game against Nebraska through Purple Pricing at a final price of just over $120 for sideline seats. As it turns out, that price was pretty close to the market rate, and though a sellout was announced, there were still tickets available until close to game time. Moreover, only one ticket on StubHub was cheaper than $70 as of the afternoon before the game. 59ce067264
