"I like grass,” OSU linebacker Andre Sexton said. "Everybody has the right cleats and we’ve played well on grass this year, so we’ll be alright.”
The weather has been unseasonably rainy lately in Southern California, which contributed to the sloppy field for the Poinsettia Bowl. But the forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 60s and plenty of sunshine through Tuesday, so the field should dry up significantly.
"I actually think you can cut better on grass,” said Cowboy quarterback Zac Robinson, who played one of his better games on grass at Colorado. "You don’t even really think about it when you’re out there. You’re just cutting and trying to move around like you always do.
"I don’t think it’ll be a problem. It’s supposed to be nice the rest of the week.”
