No. 15 Arizona State and Duke will battle in the 81st Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso on Saturday.
Game time for this contest is at 2 p.m. ET, with the live broadcast being on CBS.
Duke head coach David Cutcliffe can’t wait.
“We are really excited to play a team as talented and as highly ranked as Arizona State,” Cutcliffe said ahead of the game.
“These are two teams with a lot of playmakers.
“It is important to our guys to finish strong with this win.”
The Sun Devils (9-3) was beaten out by Arizona in the race to play in the Pac-12 championship in their last game in November, but the confidence remain high as they seek to close out the season on a winning note.
Arizona State faces a Duke (9-3) side that shares the same record, and both programs are on the hunt to record back-to-back 10-win campaigns.
“This is a great opportunity for us to compete against a top-notch program and close out the 2014 season on a high note,” said Sun Devils coach Todd Graham.
The Blue Devils and senior quarterback Anthony Boone, who has career bests of 2507 yards and 17 touchdowns heading into Saturday’s game, ended the regular season with a 41-21 victory over Wake Forest.
He went 19 of 31 for 275 yards and a touchdown in that win.
Elsewhere on Saturday in college bowl games, Nebraska and No. 24 USC will battle for the National University Holiday Bowl, with Boston College and Penn State hunt the New Era Pinstripe Bowl and Miami (FL) and South Carolina play for the Duck Commander Independence Bowl.
