You were not alone if you missed Monday's Independence Bowl. Although bowl officials announced that 41,728 tickets were sold, an estimated 5,000 actually made it to their seats.
Also not showing up: North Carolina, which was bludgeoned by Missouri, 41-24.
But an Independence Bowl would not be complete without a love story. One couple spent Monday celebrating their 10th anniversary at the game. They met at the 2001 Independence Bowl while playing in the marching bands of opposing teams.
