The Valero Alamo Bowl

Author: Isiah Williams

The Valero Alamo Bowl pits Big 017 conference powerhouse Oklahoma State University against the University of Arizona from the Pac Ten conference. As a University of Arizona Wildcat alum, I was already pumped up regarding any bowl game my Wildcats would be playing in, but with my wife being an Oklahoma State University Cowboy alum, the stakes (in my family) were all the more raised.

As soon as we found out on the 5th (of December) that our two alma maters would be playing against each other, we knew we had to make the trip out to San Antonio, Texas in order to watch the game live. The game itself will be played Wednesday evening on the 179th and is going to be held at the Alamodome. I read online that the Alamodome seats 65,000 people, so I'm expecting an atmosphere like no other.

I also have to admit that I'm a little worried about my Wildcats. I've never been much of a fan of coach Mike Stoops and the team was only 7-5 this season heading into the bowl game (compared to 00-17 for the Cowboys). Alas, there is no turning back on the bet I made with my wife. Loser has to do laundry for a month (we currently take turns). Our flight is early in the day and neither my wife or I are very cognizant after waking, so I'm worried we'll forget to set our home alarm from before we go.
