The game will feature a matchup between a member of Conference USA, the Mountain West Conference or the Sun Belt Conference.

Members of Conference USA and Mountain West have met in a bowl game 15 times since 1999, including twice last season. The conferences split the two games in 2014, as Utah State took down UTEP 21-6 in the New Mexico Bowl and Rice beat Fresno State 30-6 in the Hawaii Bowl. Overall, Conference USA leads the Mountain West in the series 8-7 and has won four of the last five meetings.

The Sun Belt has had past bowl success against both the aforementioned conferences with a 6-5 record against the Mountain West (including a 16-3 Louisiana-Lafayette win over Nevada in the New Orleans Bowl last year) and 2-1 edge over Conference USA.
