Red Wave support seems to be growing. More than 3,000 new season tickets have been sold for the 2013 season. That's an increase from last year.

Fans say they're excited for this football season.

"The atmosphere is pretty awesome, especially with a home opener," said Fresno State Student Bryan Byrd. "Especially with all the hype going on at Fresno State. So it should be a good time, should be loud, should be fun."

Over at the Bulldog Shop, fans are stocking up on game day apparel.

A big seller right now is the white-out shirt for the Rutgers game -- and the black-out shirt for the Nevada game.

Fans will get a chance to see all the action next Thursday when Fresno State takes on Rutgers. Game time is 7:30 pm.
