MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Middle Tennessee Athletic Ticket Office announced today that it has sold out of the Blue Raiders' allotment of tickets for the Alabama game on Sept. 3. The ticket office expects more than 3,000 Blue Raider fans to be in attendance for the 2005 season opener.

For Middle Tennessee students there is a package deal consisting of a ticket to the game, a bus ride, and hotel accommodations. Any student wishing to take part in this should contact the Student Government Association at 615-898-2464.

"Tickets sales for the Alabama game went well and there seems to be a lot of excitement for Blue Raider football this year," said John Brooks, ticket manager.

The athletic department will now turn its focus toward ticket sales for the home opener against North Texas on Sept. 10.

"We are pleased with the way the Alabama tickets sold and our focus now is selling out our home opener against conference power North Texas," said Director of Athletics Chris Massaro. "It should be a great game to bring your family and friends."

The Mean Green will come to Murfreesboro as the four-time defending Sun Belt Conference champions and riding an NCAA-best 25-game conference winning streak.
