Maryland and Virginia Tech have been matched up for the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium in New York. The schools will meet for the first time since Maryland won 27-24 in overtime in November 2013. The Terrapins will make their first bowl appearance under third-year coach Michael Locksley. The Hokies will be led by interim coach J.C. Price, who took over for Justin Fuente on Nov. 16 and will work under newly hired head coach Brent Pry. Taulia Tagovailoa has passed for nearly 3,600 yards and 24 but will face a Hokies secondary led by Jermaine Waller, who has four interceptions.

Liberty will look to keep its perfect bowl mark going while Eastern Michigan hopes to end its postseason losing streak when the teams meet in the Lending Tree Bowl on Dec. 18. The game will be played in Mobile, Alabama, on the campus of South Alabama. The Flames are 3-for-3 in reaching bowls since joining the FBS. They’ve won their first two, defeating Georgia Southern at the Cure Bowl in 2019 and Coastal Carolina in the same game a year later. Eastern Michigan has lost its past three bowl games. Its last win came in the 1987 California Bowl.

The inaugural Wasabi Fenway Bowl is the first bowl game to be played in historic Fenway Park and is the first Division I bowl game in New England. The coaching matchup is unusual. Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall announced his retirement last week and the bowl game will be his last. SMU will have a new coach, Rhett Lashlee, replacing Sonny Dykes, who took the job at TCU after the regular season. Lashlee was the SMU offensive coordinator until filling the same position at Miami the last two seasons.
