ATLANTA -- The Boise State Broncos and fans are in for a treat when they set foot inside the Georgia Dome Saturday.

The stadium is famous for playing host to two Super Bowls, the 1996 Olympic Games, and it holds about 72,000 people.  It was even the set for a few episodes of the hit TV series "Necessary Roughness."

KTVB's Senior Digital Media Producer Kelsey Jacobson was given a one-on-one tour of the facility Friday, in order to give fans a sneak peek as to what they can expect.  But Georgia Dome Public Relations Specialist Jason Kirksey says the dome will look like an entirely different place come Saturday.

It has been a busy week for staff at the dome, with a Falcons game Thursday night, a Georgia State football game Friday, and the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game on September 3.  The venue will be transformed overnight Friday, new signs will be hung, the field will be erased and repainted, with the Bronco colors in one end zone and the Bulldog colors in the other.  Kirksey says the transformation is expected to take about eight hours.
