Michigan football will play Florida in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 29.
And as of Friday, tickets were still available inside Michigan’s ticket allotment.
Per a program spokesman, Michigan entered the weekend having sold 8,200 of its allotment of 13,000 tickets for the upcoming Peach Bowl game.
A single ticket purchased from Michigan’s ticket office is priced at $160. Plenty of tickets also remain on the secondary market, as the lowest price as of Saturday afternoon on StubHub is $73.59.
From a bowl perspective, the game is sold out, as the bowl moved all its inventory for the contest at Mercedes Benz Stadium before the teams were even announced. Of course, the teams are now responsible for selling the remainder of their allotment.
Michigan (10-2) and Florida (9-3) will be playing for the third time since Jan. 1, 2016, as the Wolverines beat the Gators in the Citrus Bowl to close the 2015 season before Michigan topped Florida in Texas to open the 2017 season.
The Wolverines are playing this game without three of their top players, as junior defensive end Rashan Gary, junior linebacker Devin Bush Jr. and senior running back Karan Higdon have all announced their plans to sit out the bowl game.
Florida, meanwhile, expects to have all draft-eligible juniors playing in the game. It’s unclear if any seniors will sit.
Michigan is still listed as a 6 1/2-point favorite over Florida. The Wolverines will leave for Atlanta this weekend.
Michigan will have its first practice in Atlanta on Monday.
