ORLANDO - Many of Missouri's players got the chance to see the sights in Orlando, Florida and have somewhat of a vacation. For others, it was a chance to go home, and for Florida native Sean Culkin, his family got to be a part of his trip.

"I can't wait," Culkin said. "I'm about two hours away, so I'll have a lot of family and friends at the game. It'll be exciting."

"I would like to see them definitely after the game. School doesn't start until the 20th, so I'll have about two weeks. If I get a little time, I might drive back and see them maybe Christmas Eve or something. It's cool that our bowl game matched up with my hometown."

Culkin said there are plenty of restaurants and stores to check out while in Orlando, but there's one obvious place everyone has to go to.

"I mean, you have to go to Disney World," Culkin said with a smile. "If you're going to be in Orlando, you have to go there. That place defines Florida."
