Gary Stoken President of the Chick-fil-A Bowl:
I’ll be brutally honest, as an NC State guy I’m frankly disappointed in NC State’s support right now,” Stokan said while at the ACC Kickoff in Greensboro. “It shocks me, frankly, because every time NC State played at the old Peach Bowl, they would bring 25,000 people.
“Here we have Tom O’Brien that has done a magnificent job…they have a quarterback that is on all the lists, they have an All-American defensive back in (David) Amerson. I don’t understand why the NC State fans aren’t excited as heck to come to Atlanta, play against an SEC team, that they have a great shot at beating,” Stokan continued.
According to Stokan, Tennesse, NC State’s opponent for the season opener in Atlanta, has sold 26,000 of their 31,500 allotted seats. NC State has sold just 15,000.
In the second of the kickoff games at the Georgia Dome, Auburn has already sold out their 31,500 tickets, while Clemson has sold 26,000 tickets.
