TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Now that the game is happening here in Tallahassee, crews are scrambling to get everything prepared in the Capital City.

The crews are working hard and it shows.

We talked to a couple of people who say the work started the moment the team finished up practice at Doak and it's still going.

With just two days to prep for Saturday's game, FSU Athletics wasted no time. Crews painted the field, cleaned up the stands, and stocked up concessions.

A new change this year, the booze that will be available at the game.

FSU announced that change earlier this month and on Thursday, pallets and pallets were brought in to serve the crowd.

Another change leaving the school scrambling, those tickets sale. Workers in the ticket office say that things have been busy, but not chaotic.

"We've moved some games around that have been at Doak. We moved the Miami game, but this is the first time we've had to move a game that was prepared for somewhere else," said Jack Chatham, Assistant AD of Ticket Operations and Service at FSU. "It's a little different. We've been kind of preparing for the this the last couple of years but not having to follow through with it until today."

Tickets are $10 and you can get them online or at the ticket office.

They'll also be available the day of for $15. The box office opens up at 4 a.m. Saturday morning.

You can expect people arriving early for the game. That's because seating is first come come serve.
