?The on and off heavy rains Tuesday night didn't stop thousands of folks from enjoying the second annual Marmot Boca Raton Bowl.?

?With ponchos and rain jackets, Toledo and Temple fans braved the weather. ?

?Game officials say nearly 26 thousand fans showed up, which is even higher than expected. It is not clear how the weather impacted the attendance throughout the evening or even the amount of money generated, but it's clear that the spirit was not washed away with the rains. ?

"Everyone is having a ball. It's a great crowd," said fan Zakee Williams. "Everyone is having a good time. A lot of kids, they're having a ball out here."
