This will be the sixth bowl game for UCF (9-3), all coming in the last nine years. The Knights have a 3-3 record in bowls including last years 52-42 victory over the Baylor Bears in the BCS Fiesta Bowl.

N.C. State (7-5) will be playing in their 28th bowl, but first since the 2012 Music City Bowl, a 38-24 loss to Vanderbilt.

The game will take place at 8 p.m Dec. 26 and will air on ESPN.
