It's Game Day

The finishing touches were put on Pitt's preparations for the 75th annual Sun Bowl Tuesday, and all that's left is the game.

No. 18 Pittsburgh (9-3) faces No. 24 Oregon State (8-4) today at 2 p.m. at Sun Bowl Stadium on the University of Texas El Paso campus. The game will be broadcast live by CBS-TV.

There was a final press conference with Pitt head coach Dave Wannstedt and Oregon State's Mike Riley, and then the teams proceeded to a combined luncheon at the El Paso Convention Center. Both team's starters were introduced, and Sun Bowl Legends former Texas star Priest Holmes and CBS producer Craig Silver were honored.

Following the luncheon, players got their first look at Sun Bowl Stadium on the UTEP campus when they joined for a team photo. Following that, the Panthers went through final meetings and a walk-through at a local high school.

Those visiting El Paso were treated to a Sun Bowl Fan Fiesta Tuesday night. The event featured local bands, a "battle of the bands'' between Pitt and Oregon State, as well as food, games and a fireworks display.
