The Alamodome is ready for its close up.
News Radio 1200 WOAI reports that the field in the stadium is ready for Friday night's Alamo Bowl, with the end zones painted with the team colors of Washington State and Iowa State, as the Big Twelve and Pac Twelve teams prepare to battle Friday night.
Alamo Bowl President Derrick Fox says the $60 million in improvements made to the dome ahead of this year's NCAA Final Four really shine during the game.
"We really kicked it off last year with our game, all new, four video walls, the four ribbon boards are a key aspect of it, wi-fi."
The Alamo Bowl is regularly one of the top rated bowls on ESPN's schedule, and Friday night should be no exception.
"Now we have some new toys and we'll be able to put them to good use," Fox said.
Fans of the two teams have already begun to converge on the Riverwalk, and they are appreciating San Antonio weather, despite the rain and thunderstorms. The temperature this morning in Ames, Iowa was 34 degrees, and it was 27 in Pullman, Washington.
