S.A. the Big Alamo Bowl Winner

By Elizabeth Ruiz 

The Longhorns are set to square off with the Ducks in the Aalamo Bowl--but local leaders say no matter who wins the game on the field--San Antonio will be the big winner off of it. 

With more than 65-thousand fans expected to crowd in to the Alamodome for the big game--the expeets say the economic impact is likely to be felt long after the final score is put up on the bog board.  

"Any time you can have an event with 66-thousand people to come and experience that, they're all going to become ambassadors for our city. It's going to have a lasting trickle down effect" said Rick Hill with the Valero Alamo Bowl. He told 550 KTSA News the numbers from last year's game paint a bright picture for this year. 

"Last year we had an impact of $23 million direct and another $40 million indirect. We think this will do a similar number" Hill said.
