If you're a Duke student, you've got a really big reason to make the trip to Atlanta for the Chick-Fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 against Texas A&M. Even bigger than getting to see last year's Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel play against your team the game after this year's likely Heisman winner Jameis Winston did.
That's a heck of a deal. Now, not every student will get a ticket to the game, but if the entire student body of 6,495 at Duke did, that's $584,550 in tickets. Of course, this is a great opportunity to show how marked up football tickets are, but even at half the listed price that's a good deal. And Atlanta is a reasonable trip from Durham at under six hours by car.
Students can pick up the tickets Tuesday and Wednesday at the ticket office at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
The Chick-Fil-A Bowl is the first time that Duke has gone to back-to-back bowl games after it lost to Cincinnati in the Belk Bowl last year.
