University of South Alabama – Sun Belt Conference
The Jags’ bowl game status comes just days after the announcement of Head Coach Kane Wommack’s contract extension through the 2028 season. With a current 7-1 Sun Belt Conference standing, Wommack has lead South Alabama to its best football season in school history.
Western Kentucky University – Conference USA
Hilltoppers Head Coach Tyson Helton bring WKU to the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl with a 6-2 mark out of Conference USA. He’ll be looking to even the score with the Jaguars after WKU lost to South Alabama 31-24 the last time the teams met in 2013.
