Texas Tech to Play Arizona St. in Holiday Bowl

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

Per LAJ's Don Williams, the Texas Tech Red Raiders will travel to San Diego to play the Arizona St. Sun Devils in the Holiday Bowl.

LAJ's Don Williams confirms via Twitter that the Texas Tech Red Raiders will play the Arizona St. Sun Devils in the Holiday Bowl, which features the #3 Pac-12 team and the #5 Big 12 team. Texas Tech was initially slated to go to the Texas Bowl, but once Baylor and Oklahoma were BCS bound, Texas Tech moved up a spot in the bowl seeding.

Texas Tech's only appearance in the Holiday Bowl was in the 2004 Holiday Bowl, playing Aaron Rodgers and the California Golden Bears, winning that game 45-31. Current co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie was the offensive MVP and Vincent Meeks was the defensive MVP. You can watch that game here, but I would suggest the mute button.

One of the more popular (yet unusual) events associated with the Holiday Bowl is the Wiener Nationals, the national championships for the U.S. dachshund racing circuit. The game is also celebrated with the Big Bay Balloon Parade, organized by the Port of San Diego and currently sponsored by San Diego County Credit Union.
