Approximately 1,680 duplicate tickets have been printed for the Sugar Bowl.

The tickets, which were sold by Ticketmaster, were inadvertently printed twice and mailed to the original purchaser of the seat. The purchasers of those tickets have been contacted by the company and asked to destroy the duplicate tickets, according to Ticketsnow.

"Although we believe that most of the duplicate tickets will be destroyed or otherwise accounted for prior to the game, it is possible that some of the affected purchasers may negotiate the duplicate tickets instead of destroying them," the Sugar Bowl said in a statement.

According to the statement, ticket barcodes will be scanned prior to entry to the Sugar Bowl, meaning that if a duplicate ticket is scanned before the original, the original ticket will not be honored.
