Source: UConn headed to St. Petersburg Bowl

While no official word is expected until Sunday, a source confirmed that the Huskies football team will be playing in the St. Petersburg Bowl on Dec. 26.
UConn’s fate was determined by Saturday’s American Athletic Conference championship game. Houston’s win meant UConn was given the conference’s slot in St. Petersburg. If Temple had won the title, the Huskies would likely have played in the Dec. 22 bowl game in Boca Raton.
Ironically, it was UConn’s win over Houston that made the Huskies bowl eligible for the first time since the 2010 season.
Multiple reports have Marshall as being UConn’s opponent in the St. Petersburg Bowl, slated to have an 11 a.m. kickoff.

For those interested, here is a link to the official site of the St. Petersburg Bowl
