MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Officials say all they have left are the finishing touches. They tell us players will hit the field Monday to practice. The field is complete with stripping, the ASU logo in the middle. The scoreboard arrived Saturday and crews are busy constructing it.

Electricians will power up on Monday. The exterior is basically complete with seating. Furniture is being moved into the suites, the carpet is down, the restrooms are ready. Officials say now. They're just waiting for the massive crowd.

"We have put temporary seating in both end zones to accommodate the rapid ticket sales. We are doing this as a precaution as sales may exceed the actual number of tickets," ASU Interim Vice President of Grounds and Maintenance Eric Thornton said.

If you don't have tickets to the game there are only about 5,000 thousand left. Also, officials are encouraging fans to purchase parking tickets in advance. Parking on campus will cost you $15. Visit www.ticketreturn.com to purchase game, parking and concert tickets.

ASU officials tell us city leaders have made available city parking decks for fans free of charge. Shuttles will take them to and from the parking deck downtown to the game.
