It plans to be a spectacular game. The match up is between the Boise State Broncos and the Baylor Bears.

The Chase Field parking lot does not allow tailgating. Instead consider attending the pregame party. This year’s pregame party is akin to a tailgating extravaganza.
Its called The Oasis Cactus Bowl Pregame Party and has been planned by Desert Schools. It will take place from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
There will be live music, marching bands, cheerleaders, pep rallies, interactive games and jumbotrons playing team highlights.
This pregame party will be located just south of the Chase Field parking garage, at 520 S. 5th Street, between Buchanan and Lincoln.
Admission is $25. The price of admission will also include a plated meal. For more information visit: https://fiestabowl.org/events/oasis-pregame-party/

Number 2, Ohio State Buckeyes and the number 3 Clemson Tigers have won the honors of participating in this season’s PlayStation Fiesta Bowl.
Fiesta Bowl Predictions
Both have an interesting and entertaining perspective on the topic.
College Football News’ Fiesta Bowl Predictions
College Football News takes you deep inside college sports.
Pete Fiutak , of College Football News, notes the Tigers are beaten up and tired. This season has been a grind and they have lost many players. They had to replace a slew of defensive starters, and yet they went 12-1.
He also highlights that OSU has a resume that is the best in college football. With talent, speed and athleticism that are undeniable, he still thinks that the Buckeyes are coming into the post-season a wee bit average.
Whose gunna win? I guess you’ll just have to watch the Campus Insider video on the page. Jordan Cornette of Campus Insiders is predicting Clemson Tigers.
Tim Daniels, Featured Columnist at the Bleacher Report, thinks that ultimately, the Buckeyes’ experience in close games might make the difference.
He thinks that being battle-tested at this time of year is invaluable.
His prediction is 34-31 Ohio State.
