Ron Hart, a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management in Atlanta, said the prices are the result of a few different factors. The first is that it is Georgia's first National Championship game appearance in decades.

In addition, most fans won't need to travel far which leaves more money for tickets.


Mostly, though, Hart said the sky-high prices are a classic example of supply and demand.

"We have that little supply and a big demand for that generational game ticket prices are going to go up," said Hart. "That's just the way it is. You got to pay out for something that's good."

For those still hoping to score a ticket with a lower price tag, Hart said it's possible ticket prices will go down slightly as we get closer to kick off.
