— Prices for lower-level seats to Arkansas' conference football games have increased by as much as $30 per seat over similar games last season.

The Razorbacks are selling lower-level tickets for $85 apiece to home games against Florida and Ole Miss. Single-game tickets have already sold out at the same price point for games against Alabama and LSU.

Upper-level tickets are being sold for $55 apiece to the Florida and Ole Miss games, and were sold at $65 apiece for the Alabama and LSU games.

Arkansas' most expensive single-game ticket last season was $65 for a game against Auburn. Other single-game tickets were sold for $55 to SEC games. Arkansas didn't offer separate prices for lower-level and upper-level seats last season.

The Razorbacks increased ticket prices for most seats earlier this year in an effort to help pay for a pending $160 million renovation to Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Despite the price hike, season ticket sales have increased since last season.

Lower-level tickets to nonconference games against Louisiana Tech and Texas State are being sold for $55, while upper-level tickets are being sold for $35.

Sideline seats for the Alcorn State game in Little Rock are being sold for $45 and end zone seats are being sold for $35.
