The 2014 College football regular season is over and now it’s on to the “post season. With the “post season” comes the annual announcement of which teams will go bowling. And that announcement was made last night with ESPN Events announcing its schedule for this year’s bowl games in accordance.

ESPN Events owns and operates eleven of the bowl games that make up the annual college football bowl schedule. The first of those eleven games is the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. The Gildan New Mexico Bowl will be held Saturday, December 20th. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:20pm ET/12:20 pm MT. Utah State (9 – 4 overall, 6 – 2 conference) will represent the Mountain West in the game. The Aggies will take on the Utep Miners from Conference USA. UTEP is 7 – 5 overall and 5 – 3 in conference play. The Gildan New Mexico Bowl will be played live at University Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It will be broadcast live on ESPN and ESPN Radio.

The second game on ESPN Events’ schedule of bowl games is the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl. The Utah Utes (8 – 4 overall, 5 – 4 conference) will represent the Pac -12 in the game while The Colorado State Rams (10 – 2 overall, 6 – 2 conference) will play for the Mountain West.
