ASN and Campus Insiders are teaming up to bring you the inaugural NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl at 7:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Dec. 29.
The Arizona Bowl in Tucson will feature teams from Conference USA and the Mountain West. It will be the third bowl in Arizona, including the Fiesta in Glendale on Jan. 1 and the Cactus on Jan. 2 in Phoenix, and one of 42 bowl games this season. Of the 127 teams in FBS, 82 will appear in bowl games, not including the College Football Playoff championship on Jan. 11 in Glendale.
“We are pleased to team up with Campus Insiders for distribution of our first bowl game on ASN,” said Doron Gorshein, COO of Sinclair Networks Group. “We continue to expand our offerings and serve our communities by delivering high quality and relevant live sports.”
ASN will televise the game across Sinclair Networks stations, other broadcasters and regional sports networks. Last month, the game was announced by the Arizona Sports and Entertainment Commission as the first digitally-focused college football bowl game. Fans will be able to enjoy enhanced second-screen experience, including with first-of-its-kind access and unique digital elements.
“We’re very excited to team up with ASN to expand our programming coverage of the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl,” said Crowley Sullivan, executive vice president of Campus Insiders. “With an inaugural bowl game, it’s important that we reach all fans of the participating schools, student-athletes, coaches and communities that are part of college football’s postseason excitement. ASN will bring access to a broad audience of college sports fans that may also be interested in watching the enhanced experience Campus Insiders is going to offer.”
