ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

The RV lot at the Georgia Dome was already beginning to fill Friday morning, mostly with Auburn fans ready to cheer on their team as it faces Missouri on Saturday afternoon.

"It's fantastic," said Gene Lawrence of Tallassee, AL. "It's just heartwarming to see what these boys have done from last year to this year. It really is exciting for all of us."

The Auburn Tigers went into the season unranked. The team is now ranked No. 3 in the BCS rankings.

"We're fans in the bad times as well as the good times," said Jan Timmerman of Dothan, AL. "We were just as big of fans the first game, but it's just a lot more fun now."

The Missouri Tigers are ranked No. 5.

Both teams went 11-1 in the regular season.
