EL PASO, Texas -- The 2021 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl is set for Friday, Dec. 31 at 10:30 a.m. The 87th Sun Bowl returns after it was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic.

Executive Director Bernie Olivas and CBS administrators said they decided to move the kick-time up from the original 12 p.m. (MT) kickoff due to the College Football Playoff Semifinal games being played on the same date.

“The earlier stating time of the 2021 Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl will benefit both our local audience and our national TV viewers. Locally, our fans will be able to attend one of El Paso’s premier events, and still be able to get home to watch the semifinals of the College Football Playoff,” Olivas said. “Nationally, the CBS broadcast of the Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl will allow viewers an opportunity to see both our 87-year-old tradition before tuning into the CFP semifinal.”

There is now less than 100 days until until College Football kicks off. The game will be televised on CBS for the 53rd year

Tickets are not yet on sale for the 87th Tony the Tiger Sun Bowl.
