Chick-fil-A Bowl Achieves Earliest Sellout in its History
There has not been a Chick-fil-A Bowl game ticket available for sale on game day in 18 years, and this year will be no different. The final ACC vs. SEC rivalry game before the Chick-fil-A Bowl joins the College Football Playoffs next year will be its 17th straight sellout – a streak only exceeded by the Rose Bowl.
