Michigan won't face Alabama for almost seven months, but good luck trying to find a ticket for the game through Michigan.

The school announced Tuesday morning all of its tickets are sold out.

"We have received unprecedented interest in tickets for the Cowboys Classic game with Alabama," Michigan chief marketing officer Hunter Lochmann said in a statement. "The demand is on par or greater than our athletic department has ever seen."

Michigan said it received just under 25,000 tickets for the game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sept. 1. The tickets were sold out before a public sale could take place.

The school also announced Tuesday it won't know about standing room only ticket availability until April.
