Bowl season is officially a couple of weeks away, but a few teams have already officially accepted bids. Arkansas State is the latest to do so.
The Red Wolves will appear in the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl, the program announced earlier this evening. Their opponent for the December 29 contest will be a Mountain West school.
The Arizona Bowl will be the eighth straight bowl game for the Red Wolves, and the ninth in school history. Arkansas State is 3-5 all-time in bowl games.
Arkansas State joins Toledo and FIU as teams with confirmed bowl games. Toledo and FIU will face off in the Bahamas Bowl, it was announced over the weekend.
The Red Wolves went 8-4 in the regular season this fall, including non-conference wins over UNLV and Tulsa.
Bowl season begins on Saturday, December 15.
