Everything you need know about the past weekend and the coming weekend in college football may be summed up in the juxtaposition of two very different items seen below.

One:

The get-in-the-door price is similar to the meeting of No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 LSU two seasons ago. Then it was costing around $400 to get an upper-level ticket in the end zones. A sampling of the lowest ticket price for several seat resale sites:

-- Stubhub: $349 (Sect. 517)

-- TicketCity: $348 (Sect. 508)

-- TicketNetwork: $395 (Sect. 508)

-- eBay: $399 (Sect. 503)

-- VividSeats:  $406 (Sect. 523)

BETHUNE-COOKMAN - FAMILY FOUR PACK Bethune-Cookman - Family Four Pack

Includes 4 game tickets, 4 concession vouchers good for 4 soft drinks and four hot dogs and a 10% discount coupon redeemable at The FSU Bookstore or Seminole Sports Shop.

Hey, FSU's not alone. You can get tickets on the 50 on the visitor's sideline for the Tennessee/Florida game for $82.00 on Stubhub, an internet price convertible to the real world equivalent of $17.00 and three cans of Skoal.
