He said the two months likely covered the time it took for fans to decide which games they would go to and then find hotel rooms before booking their flights.
As football season approached, prices continued to rise.
Belcher said airport officials had been curious to see how WVU's switch to the Big 12 conference would affect air travel.
He said the early effects indicate if travelers want to save costs, they need to book their tickets as soon as possible.
"You should also look at alternative airports because the price is going to be different for all of them," Belcher said.
While the cheapest fare to Austin is $1,074, travelers could save $200 by booking an $873 fare to San Antonio, located about 80 miles southwest.
Officials at WVU are looking into expanding their role in booking travel packages.
The WVU Alumni Association offered a special road game travel package for this weekend's game. Association spokeswoman Tara Curtis said the organization may arrange more packages in the future.
"Being part of the Big 12 changes the game a bit, in that we didn't do a lot of travel before other than with bowl games," Curtis said.
"Now we're looking at this as a new opportunity," she said. "Many of these places are not easy to get to, so we thought it would be a good to make arrangements to give fans a chance to travel to these games."
About 130 people purchased tickets for a charter flight out of Clarksburg, while others opted to make travel arrangements on their own.
The association worked with Premier Global Sports, a sports travel and hospitality firm, to arrange lodging and logistics for alumni association members who make the trip.
Local alumni association chapters in Texas are hosting events Friday night and Saturday afternoon in Austin.
Curtis said the association plans to see how things go this season before deciding on whether to expand the travel packages next year.
"We'll take a look at it next year," she said. "It may be something that we look at doing more than once a year."
