In the wake of Wednesday night's 25-point victory over Providence, SU fans are getting excited for Saturday's game with Georgetown in the Dome. Meanwhile, some students have been waiting outside the Dome in anticipation of the sold out game. Brad Vivacqua has the details.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- We already know that more than 35,000 fans will be at Saturday's SU- Georgetown game at the Dome, which will be a new all-time on campus attendance record.

As for some SU students who have tickets to Saturday's game, they've been waiting outside the Dome since Tuesday night in order to get prime seating.

Several students have pitched tents and have been taking turns waiting outside the gates in an area known as Boeheimburg.

We caught up with a few who took a break from the outdoors to go in to Wednesday night's Providence game. Those students are now back outside looking to be the first into the student section for the Georgetown game once the gates open Saturday.

It's an opportunity to get some of the best seats for one of the biggest rivalries in college basketball.

SU student Meg Lane said, "There's groups of four camping out together. So, you need one person there at all times. So, we've had friends cover for us, and it's not that bad. Like, when you have to sleep out there it gets a little crazy because it's so cold but, we all work together."

Tip off between SU and Georgetown is set for 4 p.m. Saturday. If you're lucky enough to have a ticket, you're advised to arrive early.
