Was trilled to watch Nebraska play No. 1 USC on Tom Osborne Field in Lincoln. What an awesome experience enjoying a game in that exciting and historic venue.

There were lessons to be learned by everyone. You stay number 1 by hard work and focus. You become number 1 by hard work, focus—and patience.

Southern California won the game, but its fans may have won or lost depending on their airfare savvy.

Fans were tested on a crucial airfare purchase lesson : That using alternative airports saves you money--big money.

USC fans--especially those who booked latter on--who unthinkably flew into Lincoln Airport to be closer to the game likely paid 2 or 3 times more than those who used Omaha Airport. Yet, Interstate 80 from Omaha lets you access Lincoln within 1 hour. That's less time than it takes a surfer at 'SC to drive to the The Wedge in Newport Beach, even without traffic.

Why? Omaha has far more airline competition. Importantly, it has budget airline competition, with service by Southwest and Frontier. That brings the prices of all airlines down.

Look for these situations when you travel.

For example, everyone has heard of London Heathrow and Gatwick. However, have you heard of London’s Luton and Stansted airports? These usually have the cheapest fares to points in Europe.

There are dozens of metro areas in the U.S. that enjoy similar situations.
