The teams are in town. Bank of America Stadium is spruced up and ready to put the game between Florida State and Georgia Tech on ACC center stage.
So how are ticket sales going?
Will Webb, Executive Director of Charlotte Collegiate Football, says "we're hoping to get north of 50,000 people here. We've got almost 60,000 tickets out. So we're hoping for a good crowd."
Bank of America Stadium holds 73,000 people. Unlike the last two ACC Championship games in Charlotte, this one is not sold out.
Webb says he's not concerned. But he's not elated.
He says the fact that North Carolina is not eligible and Miami put itself on probation took two teams out of the mix that usually draw big crowds.
But tens of thousands of fans are still expected to flock to Charlotte to see the game.
Florida State alums and diehard football fans Judy and Mike Pate say they arrived in Charlotte Thursday.
Mike says he believes the lack of excitement centers around the match-up. "You've got a 6-6 going against a 10-2 team. And you've got a 10-2 team that lost a big game last week. We were disappointed in losing to the Gators", he said.
His wife, Judy, thinks there will be good times at the game. "Once you get there and you get in with all the fans and we start doing our war chant - it's exciting".
Ryan Pensy, with the Seminoles radio broadcasting group, isn't sure what the issue is. He says "FSU hasn't been in this game in two years, hasn't won this game since 2005 so we expect quite a few fans to come up. I think it has some uncertainty to do with the other side with Georgia Tech getting in".
Georgia Tech fans say they're ready to back their team.
Iggy Menocal of Miami - in town for the game - says "a lot of people are going go to show up. They're just waiting for the last minute".
