The Insight Bowl has many activities for the players during their time in Phoenix. One optional opportunity is a game at U.S. Airways Arena and the Phoenix Suns. Tonight, as well as the Hawkeyes, their opponent, the Sooners of Oklahoma were in attendance, as well as Fiesta Bowl teams, Oklahoma State and Stanford. Phoenix took on the Philadelphia 76ers in what turned out to be a blow out. The visiting Sixers won 103-83, but that was the closest the score got shortly after the half time resumption.
That was the last time the Insight Bowl teams will have any organized activities prior to Friday night's game at Sun Devil Stadium.
