TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A new bowl game is coming to Arizona Stadium this December.

The Arizona Bowl will feature teams from Conference USA, the Sun Belt or Mountain West Conference on Dec. 29 at Arizona’s home stadium. It will be the first bowl game in Tucson since 1999.

The addition of the Arizona Bowl brings the total to a record 41 bowl games this season, meaning nearly two-thirds of FBS teams will play in bowl games.

The NCAA certified three new bowls in May, in Arizona, Orlando and Austin, Texas. Austin bowl officials decided not to start their bowl this season.
