Must-See Festivities Lead up to the 24th Valero Alamo Bowl

Bowl Week is a little over two weeks away. While most of the excitement is centered around the December 29th Top-12 matchup between #12 Oklahoma State and #10 Colorado, there is going to be plenty of  fanfare to keep fans entertained in the days leading up to Thursday’s big game.

Here is the complete list of events open to fans for this year’s Valero Alamo Bowl:

Rudy’s Bar-B-Q Pep Rally – Tuesday, December 27th at 5:00 PM | Arneson River Theatre

The Rudy’s Bar-B-Q Pep Rally is one of the most exciting events of Bowl Week. The head coaches, football players, pep bands and cheerleaders of Oklahoma State and Colorado show their colors as they face off in a spirited pep rally.

This is a “must-see” event during Bowl Week that gives fans a chance to see the players and bands make their grand entrance on San Antonio’s famous river barges. While fans wear their favorite colors, the bands from both Oklahoma State and Colorado will lead their respective fan bases in cheers to show their school pride. The pep bands also participate in “battle of the bands” to see which fan base can cheer the loudest during this fun event.

This event is free and open to the public.

PrimeSport Kickoff Luncheon – Wednesday, December 28th at Noon | Marriott Rivercenter

Before the teams hit the field, everyone comes together at the PrimeSport Kickoff Luncheon. More than 1,000 spirited football fans come to experience the anticipation and festive atmosphere surrounding the big game. Emceed by ESPN’s broadcast crew, fans are treated to first-hand insight from Mike Gundy of Oklahoma State and Mike MacIntyre of Colorado, along with the team captains.
