We'll know Friday if football will once again kick off at East Tennessee State University.
The full board of regents will vote on a fee to bring football back. The board's finance committee approved the fee Wednesday. It would cost students an extra $125 each semester.
From school officials and alumni to students, anticipation is building on the Johnson City campus.
"It's a big step. It's make us or break us type step," said C.M. Boggs.
"It's very suspenseful, you know. A lot of us just we're really wanting it to happen," said Drew Johnson.
Now, some students don't want to pay for the fee. They say they don't think football will bring in any extra money or add to school spirit.
ETSU's president has been getting advice from some of the top names in college football. That includes former Tennessee Head Coach Phil Fulmer.
