Is this weekend's Alabama-Texas A&M matchup the new Game of the Century? If box-office sales are any indication, that might be the case.

Forbes.com reports that tickets to attend the No. 1 Crimson Tide's game against the sixth-ranked Aggies in College Station on Saturday are listed at an average of $763 on the secondary market. That's $50 more than the 2011 matchup between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama, which was then billed as the Game of the Century.

This Saturday's meeting between Alabama and A&M has been generating hype ever since Johnny Manziel led the Aggies to an upset of 'Bama in Tuscaloosa last season. ESPN's College GameDay will be on site for the matchup, and SI.com's Richard Deitsch has reported that CBS will keep one camera on Manziel for the entirety of its broadcast.

The two teams kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
