ASU Football: Sun Devils can't go to New Mexico Bowl

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

ASU is unsure what bowl game they will play this season, but they ruled one out on Tuesay.

The Arizona Sun Devils will not go to the New Mexico Bowl this season because the date conflicts with the school's finals week, athletic director Scott Wolf said on Tuesday. The means the Sun Devils will be going to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl or the MAACO Las Vegas Bowl, according to arizonasports.com.

ASU played in the Las Vegas Bowl last season, and was beaten handily by the Boise State Broncos. BSU is headed to Vegas again this year, and it is unlikely that the bowl will select the Sun Devils for a re-match. The Washington Huskies are the more likely choice there.

Arizona's finals schedule ends on Dec. 13, so their exams would not interfere with the New Mexico Bowl Dec. 15. That makes them the Wildcats the logical choice to take on Nevada. That means the Sun Devils will, in all likelihood, be playing in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl on Dec. 29, where they would face Navy.
