For a third consecutive year, the Michigan football program is raising its student ticket prices.
A 2013 season ticket will cost a current student $195 for six home games, according to mgoblue.com. There also is a $10 service charge.
The base rate averages to $32.50 per game, a $2.50 bump from last year. That is a modest increase, especially considering the program is coming off its first 11-win season in five years and BCS win in 12 years.
However, the price hike also comes in time for a season in which most of the marquee games are away from Michigan Stadium.
After hosting eight home games in 2011 -- including premier matchups against Notre Dame, Nebraska and Ohio State -- the Wolverines' six-game home slate next year includes Air Force, Massachusetts, Illinois, Michigan State, Northwestern and Iowa.
Only the matchup against the Spartans is considered marquee.
Highly anticipated games against Alabama (in Dallas), Notre Dame, Nebraska and Ohio State are all on the road next year.
