I expect it to be mostly South Carolina fans. Glad to be able to add to it!

Also... If any of y'all want to get an idea of what the field looks like from your seat, go to stub hub.com (but you can't do it on tablet for some reason). Type in capital one bowl. Hover over your section and it will give you a rendering of what your field view is.

Wisconsin normally travels well, yes.

However any fanbase will definitely take a hit in its "travel" when they are very upset about their season.

The problem is not the amount of fans. The problem is that they know they shouldn't be in the BCS, and know they are probably going to get trashed by Baylor. Then add on the fact that Glendale, Arizona is over 2,100 miles from Orlando.

This is the same exact problem that UCONN had, and it will always be a problem in bowl games when bowls are forced to take teams that don't deserve a highly rated bowl, and forced to take teams thousands of miles away...

I think the game will be closer than some expect. Baylor is not a great defensive team and UCF can run, throw short and move the chains.

anybody that buys BCS tickets through the schools allotment is silly. I would expected this for a lot of games this year outside the NCG.

edit - and while I'm on the fiesta tangent.. my god I cannot wait for the Bortles vs. Petty matchup. Two of IMO the top three pure passers in the game this year. Back to our ticket sales

Yes I'm not understanding these comments about UCF getting blown out. I actually had a little trouble picking this game, although I did end up choosing Baylor. Baylor is not invincible... They got man handled by OkSt and struggled more towards the end of the year. UCF is a solid team, if you haven't figured that out yet, I don't know what to tell you.

I actually have no problem with UCF in a BCS bowl. They are much more deserving than a Fresno St or N.Illinois.

I was at the military bowl yesterday. There were about 30,200 fans according to the media, but it seemed like more. It was a good time for the 4 kids I had in tote, all boys. Basically these bowl games are a fun time for the fans and players. The game itself was almost an afterthought yesterday with all the activities they had to do. I am sure the Capital One will be even a bigger outing. If I were closer I would go. I just can't afford to buy the tickets and travel, hotel, and meals. That's why it's good they have the bowls spread out over the east coast and Texas. If you can afford it or live in FL yeah support the Gamecocks. I went out and supported MD yesterday against Marshall. I wore my Gamecock hooded and got lots of "Go Cocks" from the crowd there.

Glad to say that my family added 8 tickets to the Gamecock side. I am looking forward to being there and cheering till I am hoarse, like I did last year in Tampa.
I would be really surprised if we didn't FAR outnumber them in the stands. It is a LONG way from Wisconsin to FL.

I actually have no problem with UCF in a BCS bowl. They are much more deserving than a Fresno St or N.Illinois.

I don't have a problem with them being in the bowl. I have a problem with the BCS not allowing the best teams in the best bowls. The BCS bowls (Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange, National Championship) should feature the top 10 in the BCS. How does teams ranked in the top 10 get skipped for CUSA teams?

Which is why I can't wait for SOS to actually mean something.

UCF is not a CUSA team. They are an AAC team (former Big East). Don't let their conference fool you, they are a good program.

Might want to check that history. IIRC UCF joined this year from the Conference USA, after the ACC gutted the Big East for teams last year.

I don't care about that, you are not looking at my point. The BCS puts out rankings of the top teams in the country, then DOESN'T USE their own rankings for putting the best 10 teams in the country in the top paying/top tier bowl games.

Do you not see the stupidity in this logic?

That would be like me putting out a final rankings, and then selecting teams ranked 5 and 12 to play in the National Championship. While the BCS would never do that for the National Championship, they decided that one of the 4 best bowls outside of it should just skip top 10 ranked teams to let the 15th best team play in it due to STUPID rules.

I've always thought this, and not just because we jot skipped the past 2 years.

I bet Wisconsin fans are still salty from that PSU loss. And they went to the rose bowl the past 3 years so they probably see this as a downgrade.

The BCS should just rank 1 and 2. The rest of the rankings don't matter when it comes to bowl selection. Every other stupid rule determines bowl selection.
