ACC title game tickets pass 55,000 mark

Ticket sales for the ACC championship game Dec. 4 at Charlotte's Bank of America Stadium have surpassed the 55,000 mark, thanks in large part to a buying surge this weekend after Virginia Tech clinched a spot in the game.

Hokies fans have bought more than 5,500 tickets overnight and today after their team's victory Saturday against Miami, according to Will Webb, the game's executive director.

Webb says he's concerned that fans of the Hokies' opposition -- either N.C. State or Florida State -- will have a limited chance to buy tickets because of the pace of sales the game has experienced all season. -- David Scott
