MIAMI GARDENS, Florida — After a 40-minute bus ride from the Harbor Beach Marriott in Fort Lauderdale (with a police escort), we’re at Sun Life Stadium.
We’re in the baseball press box. When the Marlins played in this stadium, our seats were right behind home plate. Unfortunately, they’re in a corner of the end zone now.
We’ve got a decent amount of national reporters, as you can see from the seating chart. There’s an auxiliary press box in the end zone where more reporters are sitting.
The BCS National Championship Game is scheduled for 7:38 p.m. The Zac Brown Band is scheduled to sing the national anthem, and a national high school all-star band will play at halftime.
Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit are calling the game. Tom Rinaldi and Heather Cox will handle sideline duties.
