Fiesta about to kickoff

By Kevin Gemmell

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- A couple of more observations from the sideline as we get ready to kickoff.

First, wide receiver Chris Owusu is dressed in full pads and went through the full warm up session -- but more than likely it's just so he can be part of the team experience -- similar to what happened against Notre Dame in the regular season finale. Owusu did not run any plays with either the first- or second-team offenses.

If there is a change to his status, I'll let  you know.

Next, 100-yard American flags are very cool. Bald eagles trained to fly over them during the national anthem are even cooler. Might be better than the jet flyovers.

Enjoy the game. Going to be a good one.
