Fans in town for the Beef O'Brady's Bowl at Tropicana Field took advantage of warm, sunny weather to enjoy some tailgating in the parking lot before the kickoff.

The game pits Ohio (7-5, 4-4 MAC) and East Carolina (9-3, 6-2 C-USA). Kickoff was scheduled for 2 p.m.

Both teams and fans enjoyed a Beach Day Sunday at the Tradewinds Resort. It featured various contests, including a tug-of-war contest.
