The 87th Sun Bowl is looking to finalize its second team to match against the Washington State Cougars (7-5). The team that is believed to be replacing the Miami Hurricanes is the Central Michigan Chippewas (8-4), according to local area reporter Colin Deaver with KTSM 9 News.

Central Michigan was set to face the Boise State Broncos in the Arizona Bowl, but Boise State was forced to cancel due to team issues with COVID-19. Miami was forced to cancel its matchup with Washington State on Sunday night.

It is unknown if the Arizona Bowl will still proceed to find two more teams with both Boise State and now Central Michigan reportedly out of the game. In a report by Sports Illustrated college football reporter Ross Dellenger, Washington State is committed to playing in the Sun Bowl. For the Chippewas, the MAC and the Arizona Bowl must both agree to allow Central Michigan to be released so they can face Washington State on Friday, December 31st.
