ATLANTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- The new College Football Hall of Fame is opening just up I-20 in Atlanta this weekend.
The historic hall has been in South Bend, Indiana for the past two decades. Now, it's reopening in the Peach State. The official grand opening is Saturday, but News 12 went to Atlanta to give you a sneak peek.
When you walk through the front doors, you're immediately in the game. The game-day tunnel opens up to an impressive display wall.
You register for a pass when you walk in that customizes your experience to your favorite team. A few Hall of Farmers like Tracy Hamm, a Georgia Southern Eagle stopped by Wednesday and gave it their seal of approval.
There's plenty of keepsakes to take home. You can record yourself singing your favorite fight song or make your pick on College Gameday. It's all recorded to your chip and you can have it emailed to you.
The football you see from the outside of the building houses the actual hall of fame, but sticking with the theme it's all modern and interactive.
A must see national attraction for the football faithful is now just a couple of hours up the road.
The grand opening is at 10 Saturday morning and tickets are $20 each. Tickets can be purchased in advanced here.
