Stadium is empty, parking lot filling up

January, 4, 2010
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The gates are not open at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale yet, but there are plenty of Boise State and TCU fans outside tailgating.

The field is ready to go, complete with a Tostitos Fiesta Bowl logo at midfield. There is TCU and Boise State lettering and colors in each end zone. And some TCU trainers are throwing the football around.

I'm headed out to catch the scene outside the stadium on another beautiful day out here.
