For the second time two national junior college football teams are about to face off on the grid iron in Bryan-College Station in the Brazos Valley Bowl.

"I'm thinking the weather may hinder it a little bit but I'm hoping to get the community out there to support because we want NJCAA to see that our community does rally behind events like these," said executive director of the BCS Convention and Visitors Bureau, Shannon Overby.

Overby says the bowl game is expected to bring in around 4,000 visitors to town and the timing couldn't be better.

"It's a great way to bring people into the community at a typically not very busy time spending money in our restaurants, shops and staying in our hotels and making an economic impact."

It's the largest junior college bowl game and Overby hopes that after the Kyle Field redevelopment project is done, it'll be even bigger than it is now.

"Hopefully by the time we get it back over to Kyle Field we can make it the national championship game for NJCAA," Overby said.

Kick off is slated for noon Saturday at Merrill Green Stadium in Bryan.

Tickets are $5 for adults, and student 18 and under can get in free. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the CVB or purchased at the gate Saturday.
