The Virginia Tech ticket office reported that as of Monday, Dec. 17, it has sold 14,414 tickets for the Toyota Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla. The New Year's Day bowl will pit the Hokies against the Seminoles of Florida State University.

The ticket office also began shipping the first tickets this past Friday. Most tickets will be sent via UPS, with some others traveling through regular mail.

Even though Tech has far exceeded its original allotment of 12,500 tickets, there are still Gator Bowl tickets for sale at $40 apiece. The phone number for the ticket office is 1-800-VA TECH4. Fans can also place orders on-line at hokietickets.com.
