HONOLULU (AP) -- Conference USA has agreed to participate in the
Hawaii Bowl through 2013.
ESPN Regional Television, the owner and operator of the college bowl game, made the announcement Friday.
This year's game at Aloha Stadium is slated for Dec. 24 and will feature a Conference USA team against a team from the Western Athletic Conference. Hawaii will represent the WAC, if the Warriors are bowl eligible.
Conference USA's most recent appearance in the Hawaii Bowl was in 2007, when East Carolina defeated the WAC's Boise State.
C-USA teams have played in five of the seven bowl games played since its inception in 2002.
Notre Dame beat Hawaii 49-21 in last year's game.
