Chick-fil-A Bowl sold out

With the announcement Wednesday that Virginia Tech had sold its allotment of ticket, the Chick-fil-A Bowl will have its 13th consecutive sell-out crowd when the Hokies meet Tennessee at the Georgia Dome on Dec. 31.

Both Virginia Tech and Tennessee were given about 17,000 tickets from the bowl for the game, and each used full allotment following their selections on December 6. Tennessee sold out its allocation shortly after the game was announced, while the Hokies' tickets lasted longer.

The remaining tickets were sold regionally and locally through the Chick-fil-A Bowl office.

The meeting between Virginia Tech (9-3) and Tennessee (7-5) has been one of the most sought match ups of football fans of both programs. The schools are separated by a 230-mile drive but have only played seven times, and have met only once in the past 15 years; the Volunteers have a 5-2 series lead.

13 consecutive? No way. I was at the UMD/Tennesse game back in 2002. It was a big crowd, but it was not sold out. That was less than 13 years ago.
