TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - It's been a busy weekend for businesses around Tallahassee thanks to the two season openers.

WTXL ABC's Jada Williams was live Monday morning with a look at how the big games are bringing in more money for the business owners.

With two season openers this Labor Day Weekend, thousands of people are coming into the Capital City to celebrate and welcome college football back.

Florida A&M opened their season Saturday, and Monday night FLorida State will play their first game.

Most hotels in the Tallahassee area have been completely booked for the weekend for those big games.

Visit Talahassee and the Downtown Improvement Authority both said this weekend is huge not only because both schools are starting the season.

The weekend is also huge because it falls on a holiday weekend and, this year, fans are even more excited to see what the new head coaches for both teams will bring.

More than 84,000 fans are expected to come out for the 'Noles game.

So remember that dining, shopping and even driving near Doak will probably be a headache.
