COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMOX) - It’s quite the hot ticket.

Next Saturday’s SEC Championship football game between #5 Missouri and #3 Auburn at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta has fans digging deep into their pocketbooks.

A Mizzou athletics spokesman says the school’s allotment of 16,000 tickets had sold out by eight, Sunday morning.
So that has some fans turning to other outlets.

A midday Sunday check of the ticket re-sale site Stub Hub had upper corner seats going for nearly $300, while lower prime tickets were approaching $2,000 each.
