ASN and Campus Insiders are teaming up again to bring you the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

The game on Dec. 30 in Tucson, Ariz., will feature teams from the Mountain West and Conference USA or Sun Belt. ASN will televise the game live across many of parent company Sinclair Broadcasting’s television stations, stations of other television broadcasters, and regional sports networks in more than 100 markets.

“Our strategic partnership with ASN is a critical element of our game plan to maximize the broadcast potential of this bowl,” said Mike Feder, executive director of the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl. “Working with ASN last year in our inaugural game showed us what a critical difference their reach can make, and we look forward to building on that success this year by tapping into a growing affiliate marketplace.”

Campus Insiders will return this year as the bowl’s digital media partner. Campus Insiders will stream the event live.

Last year, Nevada beat Colorado State 28-23 in a matchup of Mountain West opponents. It marked the 14th time teams from the same conference met in a bowl and the first since 1979.

The Wolfpack scored the game-winner with 1:06 remaining but Colorado State almost pulled it out. The Rams drove to Nevada’s 12-yard line as time ran out.

“Well, that was fun. It was a really fun football game,” said Nevada head coach Brian Polian. “I want to say publicly that this was a great experience. This was a great bowl.”
