Is there any way to fight my underage consumption ticketif the officers only grounds were smelling alcohol on my breath?

I’m currently 19 years old and I was simply walking through a university parking lot at 1 A.M. not doing a single thing wrong. If I don’t fight this i will have a $300 fine and I will lose my license for 30 days.
