Tallahassee, FL - Unconquered and unblemished may sum up the FSU football season thus far. All that's left is a trip to the holy grail of college football, the Rose Bowl stadium for the BCS National Championship Game in Pasadena, California, against Auburn University January 6, 2014.
"First time we've ever played in the Rose Bowl and so I think people realize this is an once in a lifetime opportunity. They're really getting on board and so it's going to be very exciting," said Scott Atwell, FSU Alumni Association President. FSU students definitely agree. "I believe we're really pumped about it, we have a lot of school spirit here regardless of our football season and this just kind of amplifies it. It's crazy here," said FSU student Jordyn Ghanem.
For travel agencies in town the calls have been flooding in with people asking about travel packages to Pasadena. Triple A started booking travel packages last week.
