85th Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl Stanford Cardinal vs Pitt Panthers, El Paso, TX, December 31, 2018, Andres Acosta | El Paso Herald-Post
As the NCAA, the Football Bowl Association and the Division I football conferences are scheduled to announce all placements for post-season play Sunday, December 8 at approximately 2 p.m. (MT), the Sun Bowl Association is planning a party of their own.
A Selection Sunday Party will be hosted by the Sun Bowl Association to announce the 2019 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl match-up at Sunland Park Racetrack (1200 Futurity Drive, Sunland Park, N.M.) on Sunday, December 8 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. (MT).
The event is free and open to the public as there will be plenty of opportunities to win some great prizes.
“This has been a very interesting college football season as teams from both conferences were very competitive and the standings were changing week after week,” said Executive Director of the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl Bernie Olivas. “Other than Clemson out of the ACC and Oregon and Utah out of the Pac-12, both conferences were evenly matched.”
The 2019 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl game will take place on Tuesday, December 31 at noon MT (2 p.m. ET) at Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso.
The 2019 game will mark the 86th anniversary of the Sun Bowl game and the 52nd consecutive broadcast on CBS. The game will feature selections from the ACC and Pac-12 conferences.
Stanford defeated Pitt, 14-13 in the 2018 Sun Bowl.
