Chick-fil-A Kickoff game a sellout

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

No public ticket sales will be necessary for the season-opening game between Virginia Tech and Alabama, as each school was allotted and completely sold through 31,200 tickets, Chick-fil-A Bowl officials announced Tuesday.

The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game, a Chick-fil-A Bowl event, will match these projected preseason top-10-ranked powers Sept. 5 at 8 p.m. (ET) in the Georgia Dome. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN.

The Hokies are good enough to beat Alabama. The more difficult task will be getting through their Coastal Division opponents unscathed.
