CINCINNATI — While fans can still nab a parking ticket for Saturday's American Athletic Conference Championship, the game itself is sold out.

UC's athletic department tweeted Thursday the University of Houston had returned some of its tickets, making more seats available for purchase. In less than 24 hours, the limited number of tickets to Nippert were nabbed.

A garage on Eden Avenue is the only spot with space left to sell, and UC Parking Services said those spots are almost gone.

Tickets to the game are available for resale, some listed as low as $55 — less than some secondhand student ticket costs.

"People were reselling them for like $90," student Jordan Tiberao said. "You know it was first come, first served and now they're selling them for expensive prices that I just can't afford right now."

Student Spencer Jacobson said no price is high enough for him to sell his tickets.

"I wouldn't sell them," Jacobson said. "I'd rather be there than the money I'd get for them."

For those who cannot afford tickets, a quick trip down McMicken and Calhoun found at least four places ready for watch parties within walking distance of the stadium

Saturday’s game will be played at home in Nippert Stadium at 4 p.m. and will also air on WCPO 9.

Houston moved to No. 21 in the AP rankings, giving the Bearcats a chance at another Top 25 win before the CFP selection committee makes its final decision Sunday, Dec. 5.

On Tuesday, the Cincinnati Bearcats were ranked No. 4 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings.
