Arizona Bowl executive director excited about Red Wolves

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - We’re exactly 25 days from Arkansas State facing Nevada in the Arizona Bowl.

It’s the 4th edition of this postseason game in the desert. Nevada played in the inaugural matchup, while it’s the first appearance for A-State.

Executive Director Kym Adair is excited about the scarlet and black.

“Talk about a team that is ending their season really well. Four of their last five games have been wins, four of the last games in a row are wins. 8th consecutive bowl game, this is a team that has a lot of energy and is behind a senior quarterback that is really going to go far in the NFL I think. This is a really exciting team, we’re looking forward to bringing Arkansas State to Tucson.”

Arkansas State faces Nevada on Saturday, December 29th. Kickoff is at 12:15pm, the game will be televised on the CBS Sports Network.

Matthew Schwartz will be in Tucson to cover the matchup as a part of three days of bowl coverage.
