Alabama-Texas A&M tickets listed for historic prices on secondary market

This weekend's affair between Alabama and Texas A&M in College Station may be the most anticipated game in college football history.

According to Forbes.com, tickets to see the top-ranked Crimson Tide battle the sixth-ranked Aggies are listed at an average of $763 on the secondary market. Amazingly, that figure is nearly $50 more than the secondary market for tickets to attend the 2011 matchup between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama, which was touted as the "Game of the Century" at the time.

The hype and intrigue surrounding this weekend's game is certainly warranted. The Tide are hungry to avenge last year's regular season loss to reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and the Aggies. Additionally, both teams need to win to stay in the national title hunt.

ESPN's College GameDay will be on site throughout the day for the monumental clash while CBS will reportedly keep one camera on Manziel for its whole broadcast.

Kick off is slated for 3:30 pm local time on CBS.
