The CW Network to Broadcast the 2023 Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl

The CW Network announces that it will become the exclusive broadcast home of the 2023 BARSTOOL SPORTS ARIZONA BOWL. Now in its eighth year, the game features two bowl-eligible teams from the Mountain West Conference and Mid-American Conference and will air live from Arizona Stadium in Tucson on Saturday, December 30 at 4:00 p.m. ET.

“As The CW continues its expansion into live sports, we are thrilled to partner with Barstool Sports to bring our viewers the 2023 BARSTOOL SPORTS ARIZONA BOWL,” says Brad Schwartz, President of Entertainment, The CW Network. “The CW is quickly becoming a destination for college football fans every Saturday thanks to our partnership with the ACC, which has delivered some of the biggest ratings in the history of the network. We look forward to continuing this momentum with our first bowl game, delivered in the iconoclastic Barstool fashion.”

The 2023 BARSTOOL SPORTS ARIZONA BOWL will feature some of Barstool’s biggest content creators calling the game—including Dave Portnoy, Dan “Big Cat” Katz, and Jake Marsh. Caleb Pressley and Adam “Rone” Ferrone will serve as sideline reporters. Participating teams will be announced at a later date.

In 2015, the Arizona Bowl became one of three new bowl games sanctioned by the NCAA. Founded by Arizona Sports and Entertainment Commission (ASEC), Alan Young, Kemp Ellis, Nikki Balich, Mark Irvin, Ali Farhang, and Fletcher McCusker, the Mountain West Conference, and Campus Insiders in a joint venture, the inaugural game was held on December 29, 2015. Now, each year football fans come together to support the bowl-eligible teams.

The 2023 BARSTOOL SPORTS ARIZONA BOWL joins a growing roster of live sports on The CW Network, including ACC football and basketball games airing Saturdays and LIV Golf. The CW is also the new home of the Emmy-award winning weekly studio series “Inside the NFL” and will broadcast WWE NXT beginning in 2024 and NASCAR Xfinity Series beginning in 2025. The network will soon offer more than 500 hours of sports programming year-round.
