The least expensive premium tickets for the 2015 college football championship game are going for nearly $2,000 as prices were posted Monday.

PrimeSport and Colonade Group, two of the vendors chosen by organizers of the first College Football Playoff, listed identical prices on their websites.

The cheapest premium seat available was $1,899. The game will be played Jan. 12 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The seats' location is in the corners of the top level of the stadium with a three-hour pregame hospitality event throw in, which includes a full premium menu to the top shelf bar and a $50 merchandise voucher.

The most expensive ticket is $3,899 in a suite between the 20-yard lines, which includes hospitality, food, bar, gift bag and postgame field access.

Options that include three-nights in a premium Dallas-area hotel increase the cost to more than $5,000.

PrimeSport also has available suites that range from 15 to 59 seats for prices starting at $4,000 per ticket.

Playoff organizers announced last week that 1,000 tickets to the game will be available by a random drawing to those who submit their names between Jan. 13 and May 1. Five hundred winners will be notified they can buy two tickets at face value, which has not been announced.

Ticket prices for the two national semifinals have not been announced. Those games, the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl, will be played Jan. 1, 2015. Tickets for the semifinals are controlled by the organizers of those venues.

Face-value tickets for this year's Rose Bowl ranged from $150 to $185 and Sugar Bowl tickets ranged from $175 to $240. The final BCS national championship included face values that ranged from $325 to $385.

    Orcutt Family Starts Petition to Change County Ordinance

    An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.

    Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.

    "They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."

    But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.

    "Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
