The Tennessee Volunteers do not play Virginia Tech at Bristol Motor Speedway until 2016, but the Vols have already sold out their initial allotment of 40,000 tickets.

The school has already taken deposits on 35,000 seats and will distribute the remaining 5,000 to students in the weeks leading up to the game.

Seating capacity for the game is expected to exceed 150,000 and Tennessee officials are in discussions with the speedway about securing more tickets.

The Battle at Bristol is scheduled for September 10, 2016.
