The Boise State Broncos will return to the Las Vegas Bowl for the second time in two years and will face the Arizona State Sun Devils, according to Collin Fleming of Channel 3 in Phoenix.
The 2011 Las Vegas Bowl marks the 20th anniversary of this game. The very first game saw the Bowling Green Eagles overcome the Nevada Wolf Pack, 35-34. Neither school will be participating in this year's edition since the Mountain West and the Pac-12, though in 2012 Nevada does join the Mountain West.
This game will actually feature one of the better broadcast crews ESPN can put together. Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Tom Rinaldi will provide the call.
Game date, time: 8:00 p.m. ET, Thursday, Dec. 22, 2011
Location: Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas, NV
TV channel: ESPN
