The more things change, the more they stay the same, it seems.

That being said, Boca Raton Bowl is certainly no exception.

Having been played at FAU Stadium on the Tuesday before Christmas from its inception in 2014 through 2018, the game will go back to that spot this year, according to our news partner, WPTV NewsChannel 5.

It will take place on December 22 at 7 p.m, officials announced late last week, and will be shown on ESPN.

Last year, the bowl game took place on a Saturday instead.

Other than that, “Current circumstances may change quite a few things that surround our game for this year,” Doug Mosley, executive director of the Boca Raton Bowl, explains in a news release.

Another change for this year is that all teams in the Group of Five conferences, in addition to Army and Liberty, could end up in the Boca Raton Bowl.

In years past, only those in the American Athletic Conference, Conference USA or the Mid-American Conference have been eligible.
