2012 Hyundai Sun Bowl: Georgia Tech faces USC

Ronald Martinez

Georgia Tech has accepted an invitation to play USC in the Hyundai Sun Bowl in El Paso, TX. The game is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 31.

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have accepted a bid to play in the Hyundai Sun Bowl, where they will face the USC Trojans. This will be the second straight year that the Yellow Jackets will head down to El Paso for the Sun Bowl, as they fell 30-27 to Utah in overtime last year.

USC began the season with expectations of competing for a national championship, but stumbled to a 7-5 record after losing four of their last five games. However, the Trojan offense is still capable of putting up a lot of points, especially through the air.

The Sun Bowl is the second oldest bowl game that's still being played, after the Rose Bowl. The first Sun Bowl was played in 1935. Georgia Tech has appeared in the game twice in its history, defeating Texas Tech 17-9 in 1970 and losing to Utah last year.

Kickoff for the Sun Bowl is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET on Monday, Dec. 31.
