The Sun Belt Conference announced Thursday an agreement on a 5th bowl tie in, reaching terms with the NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl.

In addition to a bowl eligible Sun Belt school, the Mountain West Conference is also part of the agreement, pitting one of their own against a Sun Belt Foe on December 30, 2016 at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Arizona.

The Sun Belt already has bowl tie-ins with the New Orleans Bowl, GoDaddy Bowl, Camellia Bowl and Cure Bowl.

Last year, only 4 Sun Belt teams were bowl eligible, all participating in the postseason.
