Duke University has sold out their allotment of season tickets for football under third-year head coach David Cutcliffe.

According to the Raleigh News Observer, it’s the first time in at least a decade the Blue Devils has sold out of season tickets.

Senior associate AD for external affairs Boo Corrigan says, "I think it's huge, for the momentum it's building for this program, for Coach [David] Cutcliffe, the players, for being more recognizable. Obviously, the Alabama game does help ticket sales ... but even beyond that game, there's a lot of excitement around this team."

On September 18th, Duke will host the defending national champions Alabama. The home schedule for 2010 includes Elon, Alabama, Army, Miami (FL), Virginia, and Boston College.

Duke’s Wallace-Wade Stadium has a capacity of 33,941. 

Following Tuesday night’s scrimmage, David Cutcliffe said, "One of the first things that pleased me on both sides of the ball was so many young people making plays. The play of Sean Renfree (QB) for the most part was consistent. He played the strategy of the game, threw the ball well and managed the offense well. The only negatives I saw were a couple of holding penalties in critical situations. Otherwise, I thought the offensive line played better than its played since we've been here."
