Football Fans Gear Up for Bowl Games

By  | 

Football fans on both sides of the river are gearing up for some bowl games.

WVU and Ohio State will both take the field New Year's day for the Gator Bowl and the Rose Bowl.

Fans of both teams have been flocking into sports stores like Zides Sport Shop in Marietta; getting all their bowl game paraphernalia.

Managers there say they've had a few customers planning to attend one of the games, but many will be teaming up with other fans to watch them from home.

"West Virginia's the first game and Ohio State's the second game, so fans of both schools can kind of get together and have one big party," Mike Roberts, a manager, said.

Mountaineer fans can catch the Gator Bowl at one 1:00, while Buckeye fans can tune into the Rose Bowl at 4:30.
