Clemson has sold 9,000 tickets for its Dec. 31 meeting with LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl as of Friday afternoon, according to a university spokesperson.

But the sales total only half of Clemson’s 18,000-ticket allotment for the game.

If programs do not sell out their ticket allotments they are required to purchase the unsold tickets. The ACC provide some financial relief for programs that have unsold bowl tickets to buy.

One issue is the tickets are relatively expensive, priced at $90 per seat for lower- bowl tickets and $80 per ticket for upper-level seats. Cheaper tickets are available through the secondary ticket market.
