I was driving to work around 1:00 pm and spotted a DL 744 and what appeared to be an A330 on the cargo ramp at MCO. I also saw a third aircraft which appeared to have been a 757, but it was too far away for me to be sure. Anyone know why they're here? I'm guessing maybe for an upcoming bowl game?

University of Wisconsin playing Miami in the Champs Bowl in MCO tonight. This is UW's fourth straight MCO bowl game I believe and each year they've chartered a NWA 744 for the band and such...

Exactly.

Team gets the A330, and the band gets the whale (or vice versa)...

UW players took the A330 into MCO last week on 12/23. I am not sure what the band took but it has to be the 744.

Gives an inside look at the traveling party from a players view.

I love the smell of Jet fuel in the Morning

the NW/DL 747-400 came in Sunday around noon - I got some pics of it flying over my apartment but it was raining so the pictures aren't good it came in from MSN. I was assuming it was bringing in U of W football, but it could have been the band.

the A330 came earlier in the week, but it left Sunday morning for CID to pick up Univ of Iowa and take them to the Orange Bowl

I'm not sure when the other A330 came in that is there now. A Delta 767 came in with LSU on Saturday, that might be the 3rd plane you saw
