Alabama, Virginia Tech sell out Georgia Dome

Fans of the two schools already have purchased all the tickets.

The Chick-fil-A Bowl committee, which organizes the annual season kickoff game at the Georgia Dome, announced Tuesday each school has sold its full share of 31,200 tickets.

Alabama is making its second straight appearance in the kickoff game. The Crimson Tide beat Clemson 34-10 at the Georgia Dome to open its 2008 season.

Chick-fil-A Bowl president Gary Stokan said the sellout is "a true testament to the passionate fans" of the two schools.
