About the Sun Bowl

A couple of teams who have found success in El Paso are hoping to keep the good times rolling when the Pitt Panthers take on the Stanford Cardinal at noon Monday, Dec. 31 in the 85th Annual Hyundai Sun Bowl.

About El Paso

Looking to make a toast to your favorite Hyundai Sun Bowl team – or life, in general? El Paso and southern New Mexico abound with wineries, breweries and other hot spots where you can find your favorite drink or discover new ones.
