Georgia football tickets for 2018? D.C. might change true price

UGA football tickets should be a hot seller for 2018, what with the Georgia Bulldogs’ run at an SEC championship title.

But the true cost for season tickets could be going up for reasons beyond the team’s winning ways.

Minimum donation levels and prices haven’t been set yet for what it will cost to get access to Georgia football season tickets next year.

But Republicans in D.C. -- like the Democrats before them -- have their sights on an odd tax loophole that for decades has been unusually nice to season ticket holders for college sports, including at the University of Georgia. Billions of dollars are at stake across the country.

Prepare to be frustrated... or happy.
