GLENDALE, Ariz. - The final touches are in place at University of Phoenix Stadium as fans get ready for a bowl showdown.
Kickoff is slated for 6:30 p.m. as Stanford University and Oklahoma State University take to the gridiron for the Tostito's Fiesta Bowl.
It will be quite the face-off, as will the celebrating outside the stadium.
Gates opened at 12:30 p.m. for spectators to begin parking.
Parking passes will cost $30 and your pass will tell you which lot to park in.
If you're unable to purchase a pass, limited pay parking will be available in the blue lots north of the stadium just south of Glendale Avenue.
The Loop 101 from I-10 to Northern Avenue is also expected to become congested as people fill the area near the stadium.
Weapons, chairs food or drinks will not be allowed inside the venue, nor will video cameras or cameras with detachable lenses.
