Thousands of fans started arriving last week.

The fans aren’t just college kids. Alum of all ages have been arriving from all over the country too. Raymond James Stadium is expecting more than 50, 000 people to attend the game tonight.
The festivities started on Friday with Fan Day where you had the chance to meet the players & coaches. Saturday was the beach competition with football and special appearances by both championship team bands and cheerleaders.
Yesterday there was a concert with Jay Pharoah introducing the bands-Jamie N Commons, Gavin DeGraw & Usher. Nice line up.
