It looks like Saturday, Dec. 17 will be the first day of the bowl season as the New Orleans Bowl officially announced their game to be held at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. 

As usual, the game will feature the No. 1 selection from the Sun Belt against a Conference USA team.

Bowl Chairman Ron Gardner expressed his enthusiasm for keeping the game on Saturday night, "We always enjoy when the date of our Bowl game allows fans and visitors to enjoy the entire experience of a New Orleans weekend with family and friends right before Christmas. We want everyone to be able to take advantage of what we have to offer as a City that thrives on hospitality and entertainment."

The Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, Idaho will also be on Dec. 17, but the time has not been announced. Check out the complete 2011-12 bowl schedule.
