Get the new Pac-12 Bowl schedule 2022-2023

The Pac-12 has had a terrible track record in bowl games in recent years. Last year, the conference suffered a loss to a Mid-American Conference team when Central Michigan defeated Washington State in the Sun Bowl.

With Lincoln Riley coming to USC, the Pac-12 may do better in bowl games for years to come. The conference hopes the “Riley Effect” will lift all boats in the league and create far better moments in late December and early January.

The heart of every Pac-12 bowl season is the Rose Bowl. This season, New Year’s Day falls on an NFL Sunday, meaning Grandpa will have to slide to Monday, January 2, 2023. It will be played at the normal, traditional starting time just after 2 p.m. in Pasadena.

The Holiday Bowl was not played last year due to UCLA’s last-minute withdrawal against North Carolina State. The Holiday Bowl has yet to announce a start time, understandably unsure of the best position for its game, which has not been played since 2019 due to pandemic complications.

Here below is the Pac 12 bowl schedule minus the Holiday Bowl:

Seven bowls will be played on December 17th. This is one of them. Prepare to feast just before Christmas.

This is another Pac-12 bowl on December 17th, also on ABC. The SEC will play the Pac-12.

The star of last year’s Alamo Bowl should be familiar to USC fans. Oklahoma’s Caleb Williams set Oregon on fire in his last game against the Sooners. He then became a Trojan. You may have heard of this recently.

SUN BOWL – FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 11 a.m., CBS

The Sun Bowl gave the Pac-12 its most humiliating loss of the 2021 bowl season. We’ll see if anything changes this season.
