Ahead of the biggest Duke-UNC game in the history of their rivalry, Duke University students have been lining up to get their tickets. But one video tells the story of how eager they are to get their seats.

A video has been making the rounds on social media of a person riding through the Duke campus when they spot the line of students waiting. The 25-second clip shows hundreds of students waiting in a line that stretches across the campus leading into the building where the tickets are disbursed.

Who knows how many more students are waiting inside just for their tickets. The number has to be several hundred more at least.

We all know how passionate Duke students are about their college basketball team. But this video shows that they're on another level when it comes to simply waiting for a chance to see their team in the future.

Saturday's game marks the first ever meeting between Duke and UNC in the NCAA Tournament Final Four. For it to happen in the year of Coach K's final season with the Blue Devils, it's all the more special.

Best of all: It's a rubber match of two prior meetings that the teams had this season. The two teams are split, and the winner gets both the bragging rights and the chance to move on.

If this isn't the most-watched Duke-UNC game ever, there may never be a game bigger than the one that is.
