The Virginia Tech athletics department has sold more than 13,000 tickets to the 2002 Gator Bowl game against Florida State on Jan. 1 in Jacksonville, Fla. Tech's allotment of tickets was 12,500, but the athletics department has requested more tickets and has plenty available for fans who wish to purchase tickets.

Tech was recently named one of the best traveling programs in terms of bringing fans to bowl games by ESPN, who polled executives from various bowls. The list of schools also included Tennessee, Kansas State and Clemson.
