    FRESNO, Calif. - With less than 1,000 tickets remaining for Saturday's Fresno State home opener vs. Cal, athletics department officials are warning fans to be prepared for parking and traffic delays around Bulldog Stadium on game day.

    A record crowd in excess of 41,000 is expected at Bulldog Stadium, which would host its first sellout since 1994. As of Wednesday afternoon, less than 1,000 tickets were available for the game. Bulldog Stadium has a capacity of 41,031. In addition, nearly 30,000 season tickets have been sold, according to athletics ticket manager Scott Wetherbee.

    "We would like to remind our fans that the traffic around the stadium on games days can generate delays, especially when we are expecting a record attendance," said athletics director Al Bohl. "We encourage fans to come early and participate in tailgating activities and avoid the heavy traffic rush that generally happens the hour before the game."

    The game is being televised nationally on Fox Sports Net with kickoff coming at 7:15 p.m. Tickets for the game are available at the Bulldog Ticket Office or by calling (559) 278-DOGS.
