Hawaii Bowl returns to Christmas Eve for 2019

Postby Dubby » May 24th, 2019, 3:10 pm

HONOLULU -- The Hawaii Bowl will be back on Christmas Eve this year after being played on Dec. 22 last season, only the fourth time in the game's history that it had not been held on Dec. 24.

The game will feature teams from the Mountain West Conference, the American Athletic Conference or BYU. Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. EST on ESPN.

The game was created in 2002 after Hawaii finished the 2001 season with a 9-3 record and was not invited to a bowl game.

Last years dates caused to change from Christmas Eve.

The 23rd was a Sunday, and the 24th was a Monday. Not sure why, but College refuses to play games on those days because of the NFL. Not that the NFL cuts the NCAA any breaks on either Friday or Saturday.
