Posted 4:43 PM 11/10/2012 : Fans bear cooler temps for homecoming
TUCSON-Many fans bundled up to take part in all of the U of A Homecoming festivities Saturday.
We haven't seen temperatures in the low 60's since the middle of April, but fans beared the cooler temperatures wearing layers to keep warm outdoors.
"Oh my gosh. It's cold here today," said Jessica Frent, a U of A fan.
Frent didn't mind the cooler weather.
"I of course went to the bookstore a few days ago decided to get something cute thinking it'd be warm, but then decided to throw on the (boots) and the ear muffs," she said.
She's been waiting all year to pull out the winter clothes.
"I'm definitely happy to wear the winter accessories early especially in Arizona when you don't get to wear them for too many days of the year," she said.
As U of A fans grilled and played during their tailgating activities, they found ways to keep warm by wearing layers or sitting by a fire.
Fans also watched out for their pups.
Did-he-go Gibson was flashing a new "Bear Down" sweater his owner bought at the McKale A-Store.
Business was booming at the store as people flocked the winter aisles.
"Sweaters..they've asked for hoodies, zip ups especially like this. The type of rain jackets that we have," said John Wurth, manager.
Around game time, the temperatures did start warming up, and fans shed a few layers, but cooler temperatures will linger in our forecast for the rest of the weekend.
