The Russell Athletic Bowl Weather Report:

After some initial concern that we might see yet another rainy game, the weather tomorrow in Orlando should be just about perfect for a late March day December 29.  Wunderground is showing game time temperatures around 84 degrees with very light winds and almost no chance of rain.

Could actually be a little muggy out there, but perfect otherwise.

Without the benefit of a "Can't Make it to Orlando?" article from BaylorBears.com, we're guessing a bit on some of this. I know almost nothing about Watch Parties, for example, so if you have any info on that, please post.

Baylor Bears in Orlando:

We want to hear from you!  If you made the trip down already, please post in this thread what you've done with other Baylor fans,where you've seen the team (if you have), and what people are talking about!  The majority of us didn't/won't get the chance to make it down there this year, and we're curious how things are going.
