The Arizona State Sun Devils and Texas Tech Red Raiders will face off in this year's edition of the National University Holiday Bowl.
The Red Raiders and Sun Devils have had two very different seasons.
Texas Tech jumped out of the gate under new head coach Kliff Kingsbury to a 7-0 start. Fans in Lubbock thought they had a Big 12 Championship in their sight, until the wheels came off.
The Red Raiders lost their last five games, some in embarrassing fashion, and come limping into this bowl game with many question marks, including who will be under center come December 30.
Arizona State had many ups and downs to start the year. The Sun Devils were 3-2 following a close loss to Notre Dame, and Sun Devils fans weren't sure what kind of team ASU would be.
ASU quickly silenced any doubters, though, by going on a tear and ending the season with seven straight wins.
ASU earned a spot in the Pac-12 Championship Game, where it was just one win away from playing in its first Rose Bowl since 1997.
Unfortunately for Sun Devils fans, ASU met a Stanford team that bested it in every facet of the game and ASU lost its championship game, 38-14.
Arizona State and Texas Tech don't have much of a storied football history in terms of matchups as the teams have only met one other time in the modern era, but this Holiday Bowl game should be a fun one to watch.
Here is all the information you need to know about this Pac-12, Big 12 matchup.
Time: 10:15 p.m. ET, Dec. 30
