If you have been impacted by Hurricane Michael, you will be able to catch an ACC showdown in Atlanta for free.

Georgia Tech is offering free tickets to residents of Georgia, Florida, Alabama, South Carolina and North Carolina. The Jackets will square off with the Duke Blue Devils at 12.20 p.m. Saturday.

Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Only thing needed to claim tickets is a valid state-issued I.D. This will apply to residents who live in counties under a state of emergency for themselves and members of their immediate families. The tickets may be picked up at 9:30 a.m. Saturday on the top level of Peters Parking Deck. The deck is located north of Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Georgia Tech offered something similar last year during Hurricane Irma. The Jackets were able to give out more than 600 tickets after that storm.

“Georgia Tech finds itself in a unique position to offer what we hope can be a much-needed distraction of family fun and great college football,” Athletic Director Todd Stansbury said in a press release Thursday. “Our thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by the storm and we will continue to try to identify ways that Georgia Tech athletics can assist with the relief and recovery efforts.”
