HONOLULU — The 2005 Hawaii Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium on Christmas Eve for the second consecutive year.

Jim Donovan, the game's executive director, announced Wednesday that ESPN would show the game between Western Athletic Conference and Conference USA teams live at 8:30 p.m. Eastern.

The first two Hawaii Bowls were played on Christmas Day before the 2004 game was held on Christmas Eve.

Hawaii has played in all three, losing to Tulane 36-28 in the first game before beating Houston 54-48 in triple overtime in 2003 and UAB 59-40 last year.

Sold out Tulane-LSU game set for national TV

The April 19 baseball game between Tulane and LSU at Zephyr Field in New Orleans was sold out more than a month before the first pitch.

Tulane officials announced back on March 18 that no single game tickets for either the seating area or the levee adjacent to the stadium would go on sale to the general public.

The game, which was moved up to a 6 p.m. CT (7 p.m. ET) start time to accommodate an ESPN2 broadcast, is one of four Tulane will play at Zephyr Field this season.

A crowd of 9,385 saw Tulane and defending national champion Cal State Fullerton battle at Zephyr Field on March 12, while 7,435 showed up at the facility for the Wave's game versus Arizona State on Feb. 19.

"This has to be the earliest sellout we've had for a regular season Tulane baseball game," stated Tim Zenner, Tulane Director of Ticket Sales, when the school announced the sellout. "It's a great statement by our fans, who have been tremendous all season long."

Tickets to Tulane's game versus LSU were sold as part of the three-game "Z Pack" as well as in a two-game set with the Cal State Fullerton contest.

A limited number of tickets were reserved for Tulane students and were to go on sale last Saturday at the Tulane Athletics Ticket Office. Tulane students with a valid student ID were to be able to purchase one ticket at a discounted student rate on that day.

In addition to the LSU game on April 19, Tulane will play host to the University of New Orleans at Zephyr Field on May 3rd.
