For its school-record 4th consecutive bowl appearance, SMU has accepted an invitation to play in the 2012 Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl, as announced by Executive Director David A.K. Matlin on Monday.
The game will be played on Christmas Eve (Monday, Dec. 24) at 7 p.m. CST/3 p.m. HST and will be telecast by ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. The game will also be broadcast on North Texas radio by The Ticket, 1310 AM.
The Mustangs broke a 25-year bowl drought with the 2009 Sheraton Hawai’i Bowl, and this year’s game will represent something of a victory lap for the team’s graduating seniors. “I think ending the streak was by far the top one and this one seals it,” linebacker Ja’Gared Davis told The Dallas Morning News. “It puts a cap on all our careers here. It’s a great honor to all the seniors.”
