The FIU Panthers and the Marshall Thundering Herd are set to square off in this year's Beef O' Brady Bowl at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The Beef O' Brady Bowl usually features a team from the Big East Conference and the Conference USA, unless one conference does not have enough bowl eligible teams. That was the case for the first time ever as this year, as the Panthers will be representing the Sun Belt Conference while Marshall hails from the regular participant Conference USA. The bowl is just one of three that is played in a stadium designed for baseball.
This will be the first meeting on the gridiron between Marshall and FIU.
Game date, time: 8:00 p.m. ET, Tuesday, December 20th
Location: Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida
TV channel: ESPN
Odds: FIU favored by 4.5
