NORFOLK, Va. — The ODU Monarchs football team is all set to go bowling!
Old Dominion University announced Sunday they will be taking on Tulsa in the second-ever Myrtle Beach Bowl. The game will be played Monday, December 20 at 2:30 p.m. from Conway, South Carolina.
The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
ODU's incredible run began with a torrid 1-6 start. But then the Monarchs proceeded to roll off five straight wins that included their season finale at home in a 56-34 win over Charlotte. That pushed them to a 6-6 record and bowl-eligible for head coach Ricky Rahne's first official season.
It's ODU's first bowl game since winning the 2016 Bahamas Bowl over Eastern Michigan.
They'll be playing a Golden Hurricane squad (6-6) that plays out of the American Athletic Conference.
It's the first meeting between the schools, although both were briefly in Conference USA when Old Dominion joined in 2013-14 before Tulsa left for the Big East the next season.
