Media Info – Holiday Bowl Game Week

DIRECTV Holiday Bowl Press Conference

There will be one press conference during bowl week, the day before the bowl game, and will include the head coach from each school. Each coach will make opening statements, followed by a question-and-answer period. The site of the press conferences is TBD.
