UCLA will face the Temple Owls in the 2009 EagleBank Bowl. The game will be played at RFK Stadium in Washington DC on Tue., Dec. 29 at 4:30pm ET. The game will be televised nationally by ESPN.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to play in the EagleBank Bowl," said UCLA head coach Rick Neuheisel. "We have a lot of respect for what Coach Golden has accomplished at Temple and we are looking forward to a great game.
"It is also a thrill to play in our nation's capital. Most of our players have never been to Washington DC and this will be a chance for them to learn about what makes our country great. We thank the EagleBank Bowl committee for the opportunity to play in the game."
The Bruins will practice at UCLA through the morning of Dec. 23 and will travel to Washington DC on Christmas Day. There will be a welcome ceremony organized by the EagleBank Bowl when the team arrives at its hotel.
