The Las Vegas Bowl has a new sponsor, Maaco Inc., and is going to be played Dec. 22.
Bowl executive Tina Kunzer-Murphy on Tuesday announced a three-year sponsorship agreement with the King of Prussia, Penn.-based auto repair chain.
Kunzer-Murphy says Christmas scheduling is pushing the 18th annual game to a Tuesday for the first time since 2001. The event is owned by ESPN Regional Television. It will be broadcast by ESPN.
Plans call for the champion or first selection from the Mountain West Conference to play the fourth or fifth selection from the Pac-10 Conference.
