We are excited that the Myrtle Beach Bowl is BACK this Monday, December 19th at 2:30 pm EST on ESPN!

The Marshall Thundering Herd and UConn Huskies will battle it out to be the champion of the Myrtle Beach Bowl at Brooks Stadium on the campus of Coastal Carolina University in Conway, SC - not far from central Myrtle Beach.

On December 19, prior to the Myrtle Beach Bowl game, college football fans can enjoy a variety of free activities outside of Brooks Stadium on the Coastal Carolina University campus. University Blvd. will open to foot traffic only shortly after 9 a.m. and the Myrtle Beach Bowl Fan Fest will start at 11 a.m. and run just before kickoff time at 2:30 p.m. Music, food, vendors and interactive fun will all be available for the entire family.
