Here’s a bit of insight into both teams.
Louisiana Tech – Conference USA
The Bulldogs return to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome five years after their 47-28 victory over the Arkansas State Red Wolves. Head coach Skip Holtz hopes to continue the team’s already impressive legacy, having the longest active bowl-winning streak in the U.S. Currently, their season record of 5-4 and conference record of 4-2 make them a solid team to represent Conference USA.
Georgia Southern – Sun Belt Conference
The 2020 R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl marks the first appearance for Georgia Southern in this titular bowl game. However, the Eagles lead in strong with what will be their third straight bowl appearance. Third-year head coach Chad Lunsford takes his team to the field with a 7-5 overall record and 4-4 record representing the Sun Belt Conference.
