Arizona Bowl 2020: Ball State vs. San Jose State preview, how to watch & more

The 2020 Arizona Bowl will be played between the Ball State Cardinals and the San Jose State Spartans on Dec. 31, 2020. The game will be played at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Ariz.

It’s the sixth instance of the Arizona Bowl, which started in 2015. It’s the first appearance for either team in the game. The event will be played without fans because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Ball State is coming off of a thrilling Mid-American Conference victory over Buffalo. The Cardinals find themselves in their first bowl appearance since 2013. The school has never won a bowl game in its football history.

San Jose is the Mountain West Conference champions and an undefeated season could boost their visibility across the nation. The team has had six or more losses each year since 2013. The team had an 11-2 record in 2012 and finished ranked 21st in the final Associated Press poll.
