Orange Bowl 2013

Live Stream, Tickets, Start Time, Schedule

Sun Life Stadium, Miami FL 1 January, 8pm

 

Orange Bowl Stadium

The Orange Bowl is one of a series of American College Football games that take place over the New Year period, with other popular games being the Rose Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Sun Bowl and Fiesta Bowl. The game takes place on the 1st January at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, and in 2013 sees ACC champions Florida State versus Northern Illinois from the Mid-American Conference.

The game is currently sponsored by Discover Financial, giving it the current official title of Discover Orange Bowl, taking over from the previous yet remarkably similar event carrying the FedEx name.

College football in the United States is synonymous with the new year period, and many families mark the occasion by attending a game, as well as the all-important and iconic tailgate parties that precede these events - for the uninitiated this involves crowding round your cars/trucks in the car park of the game, firing up the BBQ and having an open-air party. These parties are traditionally a grilled meat-fest, but as a card-carrying vegan I feel duty bound to point out that there are plenty of veggie possibilities available - there are just a few ideas here.

The tailgate party is an event in it's own right, and here forms part of the Orange Bowl Game Day Fan Zone, which will also include a selection of interactive games and live music performances. This event starts at 1.30pm, and with a game that doesn't start until 8pm you can see that the day is about much more than just the football!
