A closer look at the Sun Bowl match-up between the Sun Devils and Wolfpack


Opponents in the 84th annual Hyundai Sun Bowl have been announced and it is going to be a short drive for Arizona State University fans. The Sun Devils will travel a little more than 400 miles to El Paso for their Dec. 29 game against the Wolfpack from North Carolina State University.

This year's game will be ASU's sixth appearance in the Sun Bowl. In the Sun Devils' first Sun Bowl game in 1940, they tied Catholic University.

NC State will make its first Sun Bowl appearance in the history of its sports program.

The Sun Devils and Wolfpack will meet for the first time since 1974 when Lou Hultz coached NC State to a 34-17 victory over ASU.

On Friday, anchor and reporter, Kelly Anne Beile will shadow Eddie Morelos, media relations director, as we uncover how the Sun Bowl organization is preparing for the big game.
