The Raiderville the population has gotten up to 260. KLBK talked to a few first time Raiderville residents about why they decided to camp out.
"It's just a huge rivalry game. It's the first time I have seen UT here so its a big experience for me," said Tech Sophomore Antonio Ximenes.
"It's my first UT game so I'm pretty excited," said Abbie Arroyos, also a sophomore at Tech.
This is the first Raiderville camp out for Antonio and Abbie. They say they've been having a blast prepping for the game.
"Having dance parties, putting on music at night it's awesome. We play frisbee it gets really crazy at night its awesome," said Ximenes.
"It's really fun. The nights are cold and the days are hot but everyone is just having a blast getting ready for the game," said Arroyos.
In fact, temps have gotten as low as the mid 30s at night, but Antonio and Abbie say it's worth it for a chance to get great seats.
"We just want to get front row seats, and that's kind of our preoccupation. We'll just hang out, watch the football players get ready, cheer them on," said Arroyos.
"I wouldn't take back this experience for anything," said Ximenes.
We've been told tonight is the last official night of Raiderville so all of these tents will be gone tomorrow when the final check in is done before Saturday's game.
