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.

Duke, which finished the season at No. 24 in the BCS rankings, is coming off its first 10-win season in school history in coach David Cutcliffe's sixth year on campus. The Blue Devils will match up against No. 21 Texas A&M in the Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta on Dec. 31.
