It's going to be a busy day tomorrow, and here's all the details.
If you're actually in Tempe, there's a ton of stuff going on.
At 11am MT, the Fiesta Bowl Parade will kick off in downtown Phoenix. That's a free event, although you can get bleacher seats for $25.
The Buffalo Wild Wings Tablegate presented by Coke Zero will be happening right outside the stadium in Parking Lot 3 from 4:30-7:30pm MT. The two teams will have competing pep rallies, both bands will perform, and there will be lots of food and drink. And there will be live music, because Smashmouth is going to be performing.
Yeah, Smashmouth. Tickets for the pre-game party are 25 bucks.
If that's not your cup of tea, the K-State Alumni Association Pregame Party may be more your speed. That starts at 5pm MT at Old Main on the Arizona State campus. If you purchased a travel package through the Alumni Association, this is included; otherwise, it's $60 for grownups and $40 for children 4-17.
After the parties, of course, there's the small matter of a football game of some import.
Game Info: Kansas State (7-5 / 5-4) is a 5 point favorite over Michigan (7-5 / 3-5). The Wildcats are designated as the home team, and will thus be wearing their purple jerseys. The game kicks off at 9:15 CT, and weather is expected to be cloudy, but with no chance of rain, and in the low 60s at gametime, dipping into the low 50s by the end.
Television: ESPN, and also streaming on WatchESPN/ESPN3 if you have the capability. Sean McDonough will be on play-by-play, with Chris Spielman on color and Shannon Spake roving the sidelines. After the game, the trophy presentation will be aired on ESPN3.
Radio: ESPN Radio affiliates, although your local affiliate may of course be airing some local basketball game instead. You can also catch the radio broadcast via ESPN Radio on the web, and on SiriusXM Channel 84. Bill Rosinski, David Norrie, and Joe Schad will handle the radio call. The game will also be broadcast audio-only on K-State AllAccess, but NOT for free; it's a premium broadcast.
Live Stats: Available through CBSSports.com Gametracker.
There are also a ton of watch parties planned if you're not going to Arizona and want to have purple folks around you.
