-When UCF arrived for its stadium walk-thru, the logo hovered on the scoreboards and its endzone flashed a perfect black background. Next to the BCS logo in the stadium was the gold "Knights" just like it appears at Bright House Networks Stadium.
-The coaches and players also walked around their new locker room for the game (neither team will be using the Arizona Cardinals' locker room) Tuesday.
-After the stadium visit, UCF went over to Pinnacle High School one final time for its traditional pregame walk-thru. It would be the final practice for the 2013 Knights.
-The second Countdown to the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Radio Show presented by Orlando-Sanford International Airport took place at the Blue 32 Sports Grille Tuesday. It was a preview for the UCF-Louisville men's basketball watch party later that afternoon.

What to Look For
-Tailgating at University of Phoenix Stadium, and then of course...
