Dozens of people showed up for the grand opening of Collegetown. It's an entertainment area with apartment complexes, restaurants and more, right across the street from Doak Campbell Stadium.

It was packed as fans are getting excited for FSU's first football game at home.

"We predict another Nole win at Doak Campbell stadium, Go Noles!" said fan.

"I'm saying FSU, 51-3, famous Jameis will take us to the promised land," said another fan.

Saturday, the Noles square up against the Nevada Wolf Pack. The game starts at 3:30 p.m. and security has increased as attendance continues to grow.

"There's a lot of excitement, we've sold a lot of tickets, of course Jameis is getting people excited and of course we need to take each game one at a time and win each and every one of them," said FSU President, Eric Barron.

Rules have changed a bit for game days at Doak Campbell. They have revised what you can and can't bring into the stadium.

For example, a bag you carry must be 12x6x12 or smaller to be admitted into the stadium.

Also, umbrellas, chairs, poles, signs, strollers and several other items are not welcome.

As for the game, even President Barron is excited.

"I can do a Nole chop any time, any time."

That excitement is shared among fans.

The owner of the Garnet and Gold store, which sells FSU paraphernalia, said sales are substantially up and people are really excited. He also said the store at the Governor's Square Mall location was steadily busy all day Friday.
