The Belk Bowl began in 2002, when West Virginia played Virginia. Once the teams had been announced, tickets to the game sold out in less than a week, in what was the fastest sellout to an inaugural bowl game ever. At more than 73,000 fans, it was the second most attended inaugural bowl game ever, and the largest non-BCS bowl game crowd. This year’s game promises to be a clash of two great teams, one from the state of North Carolina and the other from Ohio. This year the Cincinnati Bearcats (9-3) will meet the Duke University Blue Devils (6-6) on the field at Bank of America stadium in Charlotte.
