Fiesta: The view from the field

January, 4, 2010
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The grass field looks like it's certainly in good shape here at University of Phoenix Stadium. And both TCU and Boise State, warming up with less than an hour left until kickoff, look focused and excited.

Among those pacing the sidelines: Former Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer and PGA Tour golfer J.J. Henry (a TCU grad). Henry said he couldn't wait for the game to start and was planning on hanging around the sidelines to watch it.

Fans continue to come into the stadium as both teams completed stretching and are now running through some of their offensive and defensive sets as part of the warmups.
