Fans flock to Cure Bowl at Camping World Stadium

Camping World Stadium hosts first of 3 bowl games

By Clay LePard - Reporter

ORLANDO, Fla. - It is officially bowl game season in college football, which means quite a few teams and fans making their way to central Florida to cap off the season.

Thousands came out for the AutoNation Cure Bowl between Western Kentucky and Georgia State.

This is the third year for the Cure Bowl in Orlando, one of only a few cities that gets to host three bowl games.

There was a lot of pink in the stands for the game, not because Georgia State or Western Kentucky have pink in their official colors, but because this game raises money for breast cancer research.

Over the past two years, this bowl game has raised more than $2 million toward the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, bringing people together to combat the disease, such as Debary resident Carol Lawrence, who was diagnosed in June.

"It goes to show you the strength of the human spirit," she said. "You never give up."

Camping World Stadium also plays host to Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State Dec. 28 for the Camping World Bowl Game, as well as the Citrus Bowl on News Year's Day between Notre Dame and LSU.
