These LSU fans are all set for tonight’s game after scrambling to find tickets.

"I spent seven hours on my phone calling everybody that I thought I could either find a ticket from, or help us get a ticket.”

“Some way and through the grace of God I woke up to a text saying they had four tickets lets go."

They chose to go through ticket express rather than to make a repurchase because they felt it was reliable and quick.

"A lot of fans are coming up here thinking they can be in general admission but general admission doesn't always guarantee and seat."

Chad Carr from ticket express says fans are searching high and low for the best deals.

"If you don't know the person you are dealing with what I always say is use a credit card."

Tickets start at 125 dollars and Carr says criminals are aware.

"We really want to caution people.”

“Just because a ticket looks real doesn't mean the barcode will scan at the gate."

He says it’s ok to repurchase, but do your homework.

"Make sure you are always making smart choices and go with a repeatable business”

Even with brokers car says check their ratings and be cautious of purchases that sound too good.


"That’s the kind of something bad guys like to promise something that's too good to be true."
