“The first Saturday of bowl season has been a great spot for our game, both for fans in the stadium and viewers at home,” Las Vegas Bowl executive director John Saccenti said. “We have enjoyed fantastic weather the last five years at that time of day, and we always love appearing on ABC.”

Last year’s game saw Las Vegan Donnel Pumphrey and San Diego State defeat Houston 34-10. It was Houston’s first appearance in a Las Vegas Bowl game.

This will mark the fifth consecutive year and sixth time overall that the Las Vegas Bowl will appear on ABC. It will be the sixth consecutive Saturday kickoff and 11th in the event’s history. It also will be the bowl’s 11th day game and the earliest date since 1995 when the game was played Dec. 14.
