    The San Diego State Aztecs and the Cincinnati Bearcats will take a long trip to Honolulu to battle in the Hawaii Bowl on Dec. 24.

    The Aztecs (10-3, 8-0 MW) are appearing in their sixth straight bowl game and ninth in program history. San Diego State is riding high coming into this one having dominated conference play and defeated the Air Force Falcons, 27-24, in the Mountain West title game. It was a close game as the Aztecs and Falcons were knotted at 24 until Donny Hageman kicked what proved to be the game-winning field goal with 5:10 left. San Diego State stopped Air Force on two separate possessions to hold on for its second Mountain West title. Donnel Pumphrey led the Aztecs in rushing (16 car, 90 yards), but it was Dakota Gordon and Rashaad Penny who were able to find the end zone on the ground for the San Diego State backfield. Pumphrey, however, did record a receiving score as he and Christian Chapman (9-of-14, 203 yards) hooked up for a 24-yard touchdown. The Aztecs are looking for their first bowl win since 2013, when they knocked off Buffalo, 49-24, in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

    The Bearcats (7-5, 4-4 AAC) have qualified for their fifth straight bowl game, but are looking for their fist postseason win since 2012. Cincinnati had an up-an-down 2015 regular season, but managed to cap it off on a high note with a 19-16 win over East Carolina. The Bearcats and Pirates traded points throughout the game and were tied at 16 for most of the fourth quarter. With 2:34 left in the game, Gunner Kiel led Cincinnati down the field to set up Andrew Gantz, who kicked the game-winning 42-yard field goal as time expired. Kiel was solid for the Bearcats hitting on 30-of-47 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown. His connection with Shaq Washington was there all day long, as Washington caught half of Kiel’s completions for 124 yards and a score.

    The 2015 Hawaii Bowl will mark just the second meeting between San Diego State and Cincinnati. The Bearcats took the first matchup, 52-23, in San Diego back in 2007.

    Below is everything you need to know about the matchup, including the Hawaii Bowl online live stream, TV broadcast information, game notes and prediction.

    The good people of the Hawaii Bowl are overdue for a good game. The bowl has been awful five of the last six times, with the Mountain West getting tagged in each of the last seven. This time around, the league will get it done with the San Diego State defense rising up and overcoming a big day from Moore and the passing game to hold on late. This is the right team for San Diego State to play, especially with Kiel out, and it’ll look the part with a good all-around performance and the 11th win for the program.
