The 83rd annual Hyundai Sun Bowl will feature a matchup between the Stanford Cardinals and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels.

The 9-3 nationally ranked Cardinals (#16) bring a running attack that features last year's Heisman runner-up, running back Christian McCaffery, while the 8-4 Tar Heels have one of the leading passers in the nation in Mitch Trubisky.

The Cardinals, 2-1 all time in the Sun Bowl, and UNC, 2-2 all time in the Sun Bowl, have never faced each other in the history of the game.

This year's game will be played at noon on Friday, Dec. 30, which is more in line with the decades-long tradition of holding the game on New Year’s Eve day.

That’s more like it. Now, let’s hope it doesn’t rain or snow like it did last year — and that the sun actually makes an appearance, because, well Sun Bowl and all that.
