ATLANTA -- The Chick-fil-A Bowl is a sellout for the 16th consecutive year.

The bowl said Monday it has sold all its tickets for the Dec. 31 game between No. 9 Louisiana State and No. 14 Clemson at the Georgia Dome.

The game annually matches teams from the Southeastern Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference.

The streak of sellouts is second only to the Rose Bowl. During the span of sellouts, the average attendance has been 72,126.

The bowl sold about 35,000 tickets to local and regional buyers. Remaining tickets were purchased by LSU and Clemson, and the schools continue to sell those tickets to their fans.
