From the official website, John Saccenti, who’s the bowl’s executive director, released a statement:
“Unfortunately we will have to wait another year to present the Las Vegas Bowl in its new home. This was a difficult decision but the right one considering that our game was founded nearly three decades ago to help drive tourism to the Entertainment Capital of the World during the month of December. We are looking forward to making our bowl week bigger and better than ever in 2021.”
The bowl game was supposed to be a Pac-12/SEC matchup but as the press release says, that will have to be another year.
As of right now, there are still 34 bowl games left on the schedule but more could still be canceled.
