Miami prepares for BCS bowl, fans

Posted: Updated:

Thousands of people are headed to South Florida to watch the Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame in this year's BCS Championship game.

We're still a few days away from the game, but preparations are already taking place across the city, with special attention being paid to Sunlife Stadium in Miami Gardens where the two teams will play.

This past Tuesday, Florida State and Northern Illinois University played in the Orange Bowl.

Now, crews are working to change over the field and clean up the stadium for Monday's game.

Many fans are already flocking into town to get ready for it. Most said they don't have tickets, they just wanted to be in town for it.

"I'm going to watch it on tv. That's another reason why I just wanted to get a shot of the stadium to let my son know the closest proximity I can possibly get," said Notre Dame fan, Rob Skinner.

The game is completely sold out, but when tickets were available, they were selling for over $1,000 a piece.
