TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV)— Fans are gearing up for Florida State’s annual Spring Game, which will take place at Doak Campbell Stadium at 3 p.m. on Saturday.

The game gives fans a chance to scope out next year’s team ahead of the 2017 football season.

Staff at the ticket office estimated that between 5,000 and 6,000 tickets have been sold as of Friday afternoon. That does not include student tickets, which are free to FSU students. General admission tickets are $5, and Champions Club seats are $50; for Champion’s club members they are $40.

FSU students said they’re excited for Saturday’s game.

"It just revives all the hope in football. In fall you spend every Saturday tailgating and then spring you just hope that the basketball team is good. But, it just brings around that fall spirit,” said FSU Senior Chris Miquel.

Miquel also said he has big expectations for next year.

“We’re going to win the National Championship next year… for sure,” he said.

Senior Jacob Beachy echoed that sentiment.

"We won it my freshman year and next year will be my first year out of college, and I'd love to see it happen again. It's just a young and exciting team,” said Beachy.

The weekend kicks off with a Friday Night Bock Party; And country music singer Eric Paslay will perform at Kleman Plaza. Plus, FSU women’s beach volleyball plays a double header, Friday and Saturday.

Parking lots open at 8 a.m. Saturday. And, the Florida State Police said they will not be making any traffic modifications, so leave early and expect traffic in and around the stadium. The clear-bag policy will be in effect.
