The Capitol One Bowl Tuesday was set to pit Florida against Michigan.

Besides their teams in the big game, the two states have one other thing in common: both are holding presidential primaries in January.

At least one candidate has taken advantage of having all those voters in one place.

The Ron Paul campaign planned to put a blimp up over the Citrus Bowl Tuesday before the game, so more than 70,000 fans attending the Capital One Bowl would be able to see it pass by the arena.

The blimp has already flown around Central Florida. It was spotted over the Mall at Millenia Sunday.

The blimp had not received clearance to fly over the Citrus Bowl, so it would have to move to three miles away from the arena before the game's opening kickoff, and it would not be permitted to return until one hour after the game.

Michigan holds its primary on Jan. 15, while Florida's was scheduled for Jan. 29.
