I imagine those in power who were commissioned to name the bowl game played in the Arizona Valley had this year’s matchup in mind when they decided to call it the Fiesta Bowl.
One of the definitions of the word “Fiesta” is: an elaborate party or celebration, often outdoors.
Thursday night’s Fiesta bowl has all the makings to be just that - an elaborate outdoor party.
When No. 4 Oregon and No. 5 Kansas State meet in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl, there will be bands playing, crowds cheering, cheerleaders dancing and touchdown celebrations. Sounds like a party to me. Did I mention there would be touchdown celebrations? There will be. A lot of them. These teams score right at a point a minute. So when I say a lot, I literally mean…A LOT.
