RICHMOND, VA—It's one of the biggest matchups this season, and fans are wasting no time preparing for Saturday's game between the VCU Rams and the Butler Bulldogs.

VCU students were camped out as early as Thursday afternoon, ahead of Saturday's big game.

“Shakaville Campout,” as students have coined the makeshift camp site outside of the Siegel Center, continues to grow as the game nears.

Tickets for the game were selling for a much as $650 a pair on Craigslist. Sites like StubHub offers standing-only seating for $80.

Saturday's game is the first time VCU plays Butler since the two faced off in the Final Four. Saturday's tip off is at 12 p.m.
