“We are thrilled to be playing in the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl against a quality opponent in Wyoming," head coach Shawn Elliott said in a statement. “This will be a unique experience for our football players and one that we are looking forward to.
"Most of all, we are excited about playing another game with this team. We have a great group of young men who have overcome a lot to put together a very successful season. We've accomplished a lot of firsts and records this season, and this is not only a reward, but an opportunity to do even more."
The Panthers played in their first bowl game in 2015 in the AutoNation Cure Bowl and then made a return trip to the Orlando, Fla., bowl in 2017, when they knocked off Western Kentucky 27-17 for the first bowl win in school history.
