Still in need of a ticket to Monday's national championship game in Indianapolis between Georgia and Alabama

Prices have dropped slightly since the beginning of the week, but a seat in Lucas Oil Stadium will still set you back a few hundred dollars.

And for Georgia fans, StubHub says they're more eager to get into the title game than Alabama fans, which have enjoyed six championships in 12 seasons.

The cheapest tickets on secondary market sites are just over $400, as of Wednesday afternoon, with a seat in section 608 going for $403 on SeatGeek and seats on Ticketmaster in the 600 section going for $425.

Comparatively, tickets in the same sections are slightly higher on Vivid Seats ($431) and StubHub ($459).

StubHub warns against buying tickets from ticket dealers on the street, especially when paying with cash as the chance of buying counterfeit tickets are highest.

The secondary ticket site also discourages taking pictures of your tickets and posting to social media sites, as the barcode can be stolen.
