Tallahassee, FL- The FSU/Clemson game is one of the most highly anticipated one of the season, and even though it's not being played in Tallahassee, Nole fans will be rooting for their team tomorrow.

One FSU student explained, "Its one of the most publicized game that FSU has seen in decades." For many fans like Taylor Block they plan on enjoying the game from a bar stool.

FSU away games for local Tallahassee bar and restaurant owners usually mean smaller crowds, but this time things might be a little different with two top five undefeated teams going head to head.

For new businesses like Madison Social in College Town bigger is better.

The manager at Madison Social, Jason Walker explained "Yeah, we really overstock on food, alcohol in general to make sure that we have enough and don't run out. And you know basically being our first year open we just don't know what to expect."

Local managers aren't the only ones anticipating big crowds.

Officer David Northway explained, "So TPD is bringing in enhanced staffing to make sure that there are no problems with overcrowding or crowd management extra traffic and things like that."

With FAMU's homecoming, and FSU's exciting game-- more officers will be on the street, and local business hope this weekend bring in bigger and better business.

"It seems like everyone is really excited about it and it seems like this is one of those places that is going to get a lot of heat tomorrow for the game. For sure."

The FSU Seminole Club will also host its game watching party at PoBoys in Tallahassee on Village Square Boulevard. Things there will get underway at 7:00 p.m.
