2020 has changed of a lot of things. The coronavirus pandemic has now caused the change of a college football bowl game.

The New Mexico Bowl is supposed to be played in the State of New Mexico. However, the New Mexico guidelines forced the game to move out of the state.

It’ll be played on Christmas Eve. The game will be kicked off at 3:30 pm EST on ESPN.

Normally, the Hawai’i Bowl is played on Christmas Eve at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawai’i. However, due to the infectious virus, the Hawai’i Bowl and the Bahamas Bowl will not be played in 2020.

The first 14 New Mexico Bowl games have taken place at Dreamstyle Stadium in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Dreamstyle Stadium is the home of the New Mexico Lobos.

Normally, the game features Mountain West Conference and Conference USA teams. However, due to the awkward circumstances of this year with not all the teams playing, we’re not sure if the tie-ins will continue.

The San Diego State Aztecs were the last team to win this particular Bowl game. They won 48-11 over the Central Michigan Chippewas in New Mexico.

The Lobos have the most appearances in this Bowl game with 4. However, the Arizona Wildcats and the Utah State Aggies have the best record in this game, as they are undefeated with 2-0 records.
