CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Charotte's bowl game will be played at night for the first time.
Belk Bowl officials announced Thursday this year's game will kick off at 8 p.m. EST on Dec. 27 at Bank of America Stadium. It will be televised by ESPN.
The 10-year-old bowl has only been played during the day in the past. Last year's game started at noon on Dec. 31.
