TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A whopper of a showdown Saturday at the Tucker Civic Center. The 10th ranked, 17-2, FSU Men's Basketball will host another nationally ranked ACC foe -- 12th ranked Louisville.

FSU is off to it's best start in program history. They've won 16 home games in a row, including against Duke and Notre Dame.

Fans say, this is a hot year for 'Noles basketball.

"Louisville is pretty good, definitely going to give us a good game, but I feel like we'll come out on top," says Nicolas Russillo.

"Very fortunate to be here in Tallahassee this season when they have such a great team," says Ben Mancini.

Just like the Duke game, there's not a seat to be had for Saturday's contest again the Cardinals.

"Louisville, we're sold out we have 11,600 and some change," says FSU Ticket Office Director, Jack Chatham. "I got here in 2011 [and] we haven't had this many sold out games since I've been here."

Students have made it three sold out games at the Tuck. Those with the 'golden ticket' say these games are electric.

"I've been to other games this year and it's empty and you can feel the fans when they're there," says Pedro Garcia.

A feeling of unity and excitement that top notch college basketball brings.

The game is sold out, but you can watch the 'Noles take on the Cardinals at 2:00pm on ESPN.
