    FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State season football ticket sales continued to climb today, surpassing the 30,000 mark, most for a season in school history. In addition, less than 600 tickets remain for the Bulldogs' home opener vs. Cal, Saturday, Sept. 23.

    According to athletics ticket manager Scott Wetherbee, the Bulldog ticket office will remain open until 8 p.m. Friday night to accommodate customers. If there is not a sellout by that time, tickets will be available beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday.

    "We surpassed our expectations," said Fresno State Athletics Director Al Bohl. "Our goal was simply to break the season ticket record of 28,375. We not only did that, but in the process surpassed the 30,000 mark, a great accomplishment by our entire marketing and tickets sales staff."

    A record crowd is expected at Bulldog Stadium Saturday, which would host its first sellout since 1994. As of Thursday afternoon, less than 600 tickets were available for the game. Nearly 400 tickets for the Cal game were sold Thursday. Bulldog Stadium has a capacity of 41,031.

    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, located next to the stadium, or by calling (559) 278-DOGS.
