Valdosta - Blazer football has business booming at the VSU bookstore.

"We've been selling a lot of football tees, hats, jackets, and everything that has anything to do with Valdosta State," said Bethany Bass, VSU Bookstore Employee.

Bookstore workers say if VSU merchandise sales are any indication of this weekend's game, the Blazers are guaranteed to come out on top.

"School spirit is incredible," said Bass. "Everyone's been coming in to buy VSU apparel and show how proud we all are."

Across town at CJ's Pool and Pub, owner Charlie Hester is preparing for one of his biggest nights of the year.

"VSU's having an alumni party here so everyone can come out, watch the game, and hopefully celebrate afterwards," said Hester.

Hester says Blazer fans have been coming out in full force all season. "The Chris Hatcher show has really been successful, especially lately and everyone is just really proud of him and our team."

Valdostans say they're confident the Blazers will bring home their first ever national title, keeping the town of Winnersville true to its name.
