Item: Season tickets for $17.85 a game? When compared to NCAA football ticket prices for other ACC and Power 5 conference schools, Syracuse fans can take advantage of the best seven game entertainment value in the country.

To give you an idea of just how economical season tickets are for all seven Syracuse home games (first season SU has hosted seven Dome games since 2017), an individual game ticket to see Clemson play on Oct. 15 costs $64.

There’s simply no other better seven game deal than SU football, especially when you consider the eye-opening prices some of the sport’s traditional big-name programs (check out Ohio State) charge.

Here’s a comparison of the ACC teams and select other Power 5 schools.
