December 22, 2011

The ASU football team will take on the Boise State Broncos this evening in the 20th MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.

The game will be played at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas and will kick off at 5 p.m., Pacific time, and 6 p.m., Arizona time, Dec. 22. ESPN and ESPN3 will provide both national television and national radio coverage of the bowl game.

Arizona State will be making its 25th bowl appearance and first since the 2007 Holiday Bowl. The Broncos finished the regular season ranked 8th in the AP poll and 6th in the USA Today Coaches Poll.

The Sun Devils have faced the Broncos once in their history. The only time the Sun Devils and Broncos have ever faced each other in football was in 1996, when ASU beat Boise State 56-7 in Tempe on its way to an undefeated regular season and a Rose Bowl berth.

Arizona State finished the regular season with a 6-6 mark and a 4-5 record in Pac-12 play.

ASU is 12-10-1 all-time in bowl games and will look to snap a two-game losing streak in the postseason. This will be the Sun Devils' first appearance in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas. Boise State enters the matchup with an 11-1 mark, including a 6-1 record in the Mountain West Conference. The Broncos defeated the Utah Utes 26-3 last season in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas.
