CU announced in July that Saturday morning's game was a sellout. And right now, tickets on the secondary market to the game are going for upwards of $400. The cheapest price to be found on StubHub was $360.

A spokesperson for the University of Colorado's ticket office told Front Office Sports they've sold more than $400,000 in terms of ticket sales since the Buffaloes upset win over TCU.

The ticket office said on Wednesday morning that aside from the Stanford game on Oct. 13, which is also already sold out, tickets for the Buffs other remaining games are selling fast.

The stark difference in ticket sales in Boulder wasn't lost on some people on X (formerly known as Twitter) who expressed shock about how much of an impact Coach Deion Sanders has had on the program.
