Need to figure out the logistics on this one. Would like to go since it’s Notre Dame.

I’ll be in Phoenix for Christmas but can’t stretch the trip to New Years. I’ll be watching at home.

Looks pricey for an 11am Fiesta Bowl game with flights to a hub. I think I’ll sit this one out even though that matchup is fun for our program.

Let’s beat them so badly, they fire their new head coach. Then let them hire Brent Venables as their new new head coach!

I will forever hate that we lost the Big 12 to freaking Baylor, but this is so much better than playing Ole Miss in the Sugar Bowl

How so?

I would much rather play in New Orleans at night. Easier game to attend and better city to see a bowl game in.

I get that part - but if you travel a lot for games it’s meh.

Ok come at me now with my previous publicized fantasy of getting Notre Dame. I think a Fiesta Bowl Notre Dame win could be better than a blowout first round loss in the CFP. Could is italicized in that I still would have rather had a Big12 Championship. But imagine what a win against ND in the Fiesta could do for OkState recruiting and branding? Please, Lord, let the Oline get healthy :slight_smile:

I go to Phoenix all the time for work, would rather have been able to visit another city. That being said, I’ll be going. Will be awesome to watch a game against Notre Dame.

Pretty much the matchup is fun but the bowl is lackluster. Not the same as 2011.

Kiss of death. Never mention stats…

I agree with you, but are we spoiled in thinking that a new years six matchup is lack luster?

No, that has more to do with the playoffs.

Heck no. Tons of Texas Bowl, Alamo Bowl, Cheez-It Bowl, Liberty Bowl, etc. Any New Years 6 is a blessing – showing my age, here. #KnowlesToFiesta

Unless the bowl is a playoff or in Texas, I’m not really going out of my way for it. Rose and Sugar might be the exceptions but that’s it.

If you are an outdoors-y type, there is a ton to do on a road trip to Arizona in just seeing national and state parks within driving distance. Again, showing my age in that I like those kinds of tourist activities over the NOLA party scene or the Disney complex in Orlando. But I could definitely see how young college students would prefer NOLA.

Thank you. Sick of the Camping World nonsense. We got a NY6 bowl and people should turn out. This doesn’t happen often for us.
