9. Notre Dame vs. Navy

Average ticket price: $375.26
Date: Sept. 1

The Fighting Irish “just have such a wide, good traveling fan base,” Matcovich says. The Midshipmen were not the draw so much as the fact that this game was played in Ireland. For American fans, it was an excuse to travel to Ireland, and for the locals, it was a chance to see a significant example of American football up close. About 49,000 people, mostly Americans, went to Dublin and saw Notre Dame sink Navy, 50-10
