With less than two weeks to go to the first game, the countdown is on for the unveiling of the new ASU stadium.

It's been a work in progress for the past 2 years.

The 62 million dollar state of the art facilty will hold 26,5000 people.

University officials told the crowd at Thursday night's public hearing that it will be on time and even on budget.

"We are coming in on budget. That's one of things since I've been here that I've been looking at very, very closely. Of course, on a project that big there are change of orders. But the change of orders are within the budget. We are expected to come in a little under budget hopefully," said ASU President Dr. Joseph Silvers.

The first game is the Turkey Day Classic against Tuskegee on November 22nd.

There are about 5 thousand tickets left.
