FAU (5-3, 4-2 Conference USA) will take on the Memphis Tigers (7-3, 5-3 American Athletic Conference) for just the second time in school history. The Owls defeated Memphis 44-27 in the 2007 New Orleans Bowl.

The game will mark the first back-to-back bowl appearances for the Owls since 2008 and their third postseason appearance in four years.

FAU is 4-0 all-time in bowl games, including a 52-28 victory over Southern Methodist in last year's Boca Raton Bowl.
