The mood is quiet inside University of Phoenix Stadium, but there's a hub of activity all around outside the venue. This scene reminds more than a little bit of 2003, when Ohio State fans outnumbered Miami (Fla.) fans by about 12 to 1.
It may not be the lopsided tonight and we won't know for sure until the gates are open. But so far in the tailgating lots we're hearing a lot more "O-H, I-O!" than "Gator Bait."
