Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Excitement is building for the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl which is set to take place this weekend and bring together USC and Fresno State.

On Friday, both teams will get a chance to walk through Sam Boyd.  This, after being in Las Vegas since Tuesday for Bowl Week.

Anticipation is growing for Saturday's sold out game.  More Trojan fans and Bulldog fans are expected to arrive in Las Vegas as they gear up for the game.  This isn't the bowl game either team wanted to go to since they were hoping to play in a BCS Bowl Game.  But for us here in Las Vegas, this game is about as good as it gets.

It should be an exciting one to watch since Fresno State is ranked number one in passing and number five in scoring.  And USC is always a big name in college football.  36,800 fans are expected to show up for the game at Sam Boyd Stadium.

Kickoff for the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl takes place at 12:35pm on Saturday.
