Provo, UT (SportsNetwork.com) – With almost four months to go before the 2015
season commences, Brigham Young University has already locked up a postseason
On Thursday, the university announced that the Cougars have accepted
invitations to play in either the Las Vegas Bowl or the Hawaii Bowl following
the completion of the upcoming campaign.
Both invitations are contingent upon the independent program being bowl
eligible and not selected to participate in the College Football Playoff.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to participate in these two bowl games,”
said BYU director of athletics Tom Holmoe. “We look forward to returning to
Las Vegas and Honolulu. We are fortunate to have a large fan base in both
areas and it will be great to renew the many longtime friendships we’ve
enjoyed in these two cities.”
BYU played in five consecutive Las Vegas Bowls from 2005-09, winning three
times. Its last sojourn to the Hawaiian island chain occurred in the 1992
Aloha Bowl, a 23-20 loss to Kansas.
