This is the Chick-fil-A Bowl's 11th consecutive sellout and a continuation of the Bowl's distinction as the highest-attended non-BCS bowl game in the country over the last decade. Only the Rose and Fiesta Bowls have longer sellout streaks.
"I'm not sure if I can remember a game where both teams sold through their ticket allotments so quickly," said Gary Stokan, Chick-fil-A Bowl president. "I probably should've had a stopwatch handy.
"These are two sets of passionate fans, and there is no doubt the atmosphere in the Georgia Dome will be electric on New Year's Eve," Stokan added.
In 2006, the Virginia Tech match-up with Georgia set the all-time Georgia Dome attendance mark at 75,406 - a figure that surpassed the previous record of 75,125 set by the Chick-fil-A Bowl between Clemson and Tennessee in 2004.
"All indications are that we'll make a run at that milestone again this year," Stokan said.
The 2007 Chick-fil-A Bowl will be played Dec. 31 at 7:30 p.m. (EST) and will be nationally televised by ESPN.
