Among the various things include: special game program, the national anthem featuring an Arizona survivor plus a skydiver, the team taking a 48-star flag out of the tunnel, special coin toss, halftime ceremony with several WWII vets and a special presentation by the Pride of Arizona, and lastly, special uniforms worn by the team.
