The Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl has announced the teams it selected to play in the 2023 edition of Tucson’s college football game bowl game. It’s a matchup that Yahoo Sports recently ranked 11th for best bowl games (out of 41).
From the MAC comes the Toledo Rockets. Toledo is led by head coach Jason Candle and finished the season with an 11-2 record, 8-0 in the MAC, and won the MAC’s East Division. The Rockets cleaned up their conference’s awards in 2023: MAC Coach of the Year, MAC Offensive Player of the Year (RB Peny Boone), and MAC Player of the Year (QB Daquan Finn).
The Mountain West opponent is the Wyoming Cowboys. Wyoming is coached by Craig Bohl and finished the season 8-4, 5-3 in Mountain West. Wyoming fans came in droves in 2019 and 2022 to support the Cowboys. They won the bowl game in 2019 and lost in an overtime thriller last year.
