UAB, Ohio to Play in Bahamas Bowl

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - November 28, 2017

By the Caribbean Journal staff

The Bahamas has long been at the forefront of sports tourism in the Caribbean, and that trend continues this year with another high-profile NCAA Football bowl game hosted right in New Providence.

UAB and Ohio universities have accepted bids to the 2017 Bahamas Bowl, which will be held Dec. 22 in Nassau’s Thomas A Robinson National Stadium.

The Bahamas Bowl will be played at 12:30 PM and televised in ESPN.

In a statement, the Bahamian government said the early invitation allowed both teams additional time to prepare to play in an international destination.

Last year’s Bahamas Bowl featured Eastern Michigan and Old Dominion.

This year’s game will be the first meeting between UAB and Ohio.
