“January 1st is a great day for football,” says Nelly, and he is right. While New Year’s Day means hangovers for many, it also means the greatest day in college football with six championship games taking place. There’s the Rose Bowl, Gator Bowl, Heart of Dallas Bowl, Outback Bowl, Capitol One Bowl and the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.
Now in its 43rd year, the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl will see the No. 15 ranked University of Central Florida (UCF) Knights up against the No. 6 ranked Baylor Bears. Don’t let the rankings fool you. Both teams finished 11-1 this season, meaning this will be one close game. Nelly gives his prediction for the field and says he’ll be watching the game in his “shorts and socks, eating a big bowl of chips.”
The game takes place at 8:30PM at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. Watch the game live here.
