Nashville, only a few hours away from Cincinnati is hosting both the Bearcats and the No.1 seed in the West bracket, Xavier, also from the city of Cincinnati. Reports say there’s a lot of Skyline Chili fans roaming the streets of the Music City.
Here in Nashville, there are oodles of Cincinnati and Xavier fans clogging Broadway as I walked over from the hotel. Did not see much burnt orange at all.
