Florida State football is taking on the Michigan Wolverines in the 2016 Orange Bowl on Friday night. In the pregame festivities, there were some notable sights and all-around action to see. Here are some of the highlights:
It was a gorgeous night in Miami Gardens with temperatures in the low 60s at kickoff, dropping into the 50s by games end. The renovated Hard Rock Stadium looked stunning and definitely a suitable site for a bowl game for two top-10 teams.
With the great weather was a great sunset just before the gates opened. Even in Miami, the sights are stunning to see.
Jimbo Fisher and the team arrived around 6 PM and headed straight into the stadium for warmups:
Noticeably when the team departed the buses was the Christmas themed suit of defensive end Jacob Pugh.
Here are some other videos and pictures from on-field as the players from both teams warmed up (Will be updated as pregame warmups take place):
