ESPN announces cancelation of 2 college football bowl games
Two more college football bowl games have been scrapped from the 2020 postseason. The two games canceled are played in two of the more exotic postseason destinations.
ESPN’s Anna Negron shared that ESPN Events will cancel two of its 17 postseason college football bowl games for the 2020 season. The Bahamas Bowl and the Hawaii Bowl, which were both set to be played in December, have been canceled due to the current health pandemic and travel restrictions.
“We are disappointed that we aren’t able to stage events at these premier destinations this year,” said Pete Derzis, ESPN senior vice president of college sports programming & ESPN Events. “We are committed to bringing both games back in 2021, and we thank our conference partners, sponsors and the local communities for their ongoing support and understanding.”
In late July, the Redbox Bowl announced it would not be played for the 2020 season.
