Big Game Details
2013 Fiesta Bowl
January 3, 2013
Held every year at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, the 43rd Annual Tostitos Fiesta Bowl will start at 6 p.m. on January 3, 2013. Last year over 70,000 fans filled the stadium to near capacity as the Oklahoma State Cowboys defeated the Stanford Cardinals with a score of 41-38. In 2007, Boise State battled TCU to a 43-42 overtime victory in a game many said was one of the most thrilling bowl games of all time, and you can expect more of the same next year as two top teams do battle. The game will feature the Big 12 Champion (unless they are the #1 or #2 ranked team in the BCS poll) and an at-large opponent.
BusinessWeek has deemed the University of Phoenix Stadium one of the top 10 sports complexes in the world. The stadium features a retractable roof that makes it perfect for the January Fiesta Bowl event regardless of the weather.
Show Your School SpiritOther than the exhilarating football game before your eyes, you can expect a lot of fun and excitement on from game day. It will be nationally televised on ESPN, so be sure to wear your best fan garb and hold up an attention grabbing sign for a chance to garner a TV cameo for all you friends and family back home. Hey, why not show your school spirit by painting your face, too?
