UGA/Auburn Game Brought in More Money Lodging Wise than the Iron Bowl

There’s a lot of money to be made on our football frenzy.

The totals are in for two big games in Auburn.

Surprise, the Auburn/Georgia game brought in more money than the Iron Bowl, about$100,000 more.

The Auburn/Opelika Tourism Bureau said some hotels increased rates after UGA came to town, which might have prompted Iron Bowl visitors to overnight elsewhere.

Iron Bowl weekend hotel occupancy almost 85% in 2017, 80.6% for the Iron bowl weekend in 2015. Back in 2013 they ran a 92%.

The average rate just over $275 this Iron Bowl Weekend.
