Yeah I wasn't sure this game would make when it was originally announced but it appears they are doing well...much better than some of the more established Bowl games.

Note about playing this game on Dec. 30: The Fiesta Bowl (presumably at 4 pm ET) and Orange Bowl (already announced for 8 pm ET) are on that date.

Unless they want the Arizona Bowl to be played at the same time as one of those games, they'll have to start it at noon ET or 1 pm ET at the latest, which would be 10 or 11 am in Tucson.

The Arizona Bowl sort of went up against the Orange Bowl (evening of Friday December 30) last year. 5:30 PM ET start, while the Orange Bowl started at 8 PM ET.

Pending whatever college hoops commitments, I tend to thing they'd do the same thing this year. A early afternoon ET start doesn't seem ideal for attendance or viewers (they'll be competing against whatever Bowl game ESPN slots at 12 PM ET anyway)_.

I think the could do a 2-3:30 EST start, if it is a good game, I doubt I turn it over to the Fiesta. I could see Fiesta getting the G5 team this year. I know if App State or Ga Southern was playing in it, that would be my preferred game of the day.

After the Cure Bowl experience this year with CBSSN, I'm a fan. They did a full blown pre-game show and unlike ESPN didn't use it as an infomercial and forget to talk about the game at times.

Per the rumor mill. ESPN offered to take the Arizona Bowl but wanted it played Wednesday December 20th to fill the Poinsettia Bowl mid-week pre-Christmas slot and the Tucson people said no thanks because they wanted to remain in the post-Christmas slot to help the hotels.

Good for the Arizona Bowl for doing this. They also seem to be looking out for the fans.

Outside of the New Orleans Bowl or Las Vegas Bowl (which are played in destination cities with plentiful hotel rooms, while also being likely to play host to 1 or even 2 very local teams), the pre-Christmas Bowl games are great for ESPN but rather lousy for the fan-bases.

I couldn't even tell you who played in the Orange Bowl last year. I do know that Air Force was one of the 2 teams in the Arizona Bowl and it got close to 30k.--which really surprised me. Good for them.

Then you missed a good one between Florida State and Michigan.

I did miss it. I don't even remember it for some reason....I must be getting old or I just don't care like I used to. Interesting....
