The Arizona Wildcats are heading to Shreveport, La., for the AdvoCare V100 Bowl.

The UA will matchup with Boston College on Dec. 31. The game will be televised on ESPN at 10:30 a.m., Tucson time. UA coach Rich Rodriguez and select players will meet with reporters tonight after the the team's banquet to discuss the matchup. 

The game will pit the UA's Ka'Deem Carey up against Boston College running back Andre Williams. The Boston College senior leads the nation in rushing yards (2,102) and rushing yards per game (175.2). Carey is second in rushing yards per game at 156.

Both Carey and Williams are finalists for the Doak Walker Award and will meet later this week in Orlando for the formal announcement. 

The Wildcats will meet a team from the ACC in the bowl, which is the first time the UA has played a team from that conference since a 20-19 win over Georgia Tech at Arizona Stadium in 1995.

The UA has never played Boston College. 

It will be the farthest east the Wildcats have ever traveled for a bowl game and the latest they've played in a postseason game since the 1993 season. That season, Arizona beat Miami 29-0 in the Fiesta Bowl, which was played on Jan. 1, 1994. 

The AdvoCare Bowl is formerly known as the Independence Bowl and was first played in 1976. It's the 11th oldest bowl game. Shreveport is the smallest market currently hosting a postseason game.
