Both teams had impressive seasons, as the Bobcats and Warhawks gained national attention for their play.
The Warhawks, coached by Todd Berry, finished the season 8-4 and are going to their first bowl game since becoming a member of the FBS in 1994. They jumped onto the national scene after upsetting No. 8 Arkansas in Little Rock, 34-31, to open the season.
