Duke students to get free Chick-fil-A Bowl tickets thanks to alumni donations
On the heels of a 10-win season, Duke didn't find much success in the ACC title game against Florida State. At least now Blue Devil students won't have to shell out any cash to watch Duke play in a bowl.
According to the Duke Chronicle, the school's student newspaper, tickets for students to the Blue Devils' matchup with Texas A&M in the Chick-fil-A Bowl will be free thanks to alumni donations. Students can pick up tickets on campus on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The original ticket price for the game is $90.
