The Valley of the Sun is aptly named. Although summer temperatures routinely reach triple digits, the winter months are much cooler and evenings are often chilly. When planning your attendance at this year’s Cactus Bowl, please remember to wear layered clothing and bring a coat. The sun is expected to set at approximately 5:30 p.m. MST on game day. Therefore, though you may be experiencing a beautiful 66-degree day on your way to the stadium, temperatures could drop as low as 40 degrees before the game reaches halftime. There is a no re-entry policy in effect, so be sure to plan ahead before entering the stadium.
