BOCA RATON, Fla. - For the first time in its history, FAU Stadium will see a sold out crowd. The stadium opened in 2011.

Friday night, the Florida Atlantic University Owls will take on the University of Miami Hurricanes.

On Thursday night, the school hosted a bonfire to get students pumped up for the big game.

FAU's Director of Athletics Pat Chun says, "The sellout is a true reflection of how our community has embraced our football program."

UM is less than fifty miles away from FAU, so it's likely there will be plenty of Miami fans in the crowd as well.

Fans are encouraged to get to FAU early.

Fan Fest starts at 4:30 p.m. followed by pregame ceremonies at 7:30 p.m.

Kickoff is at 8 p.m. and the game will be televised on Fox Sports 1 and can be heard on ESPN West Palm 106.3 FM.

There will be shuttles to take fans around campus if they park far from the stadium.
