Some lucky fans got to kick off Bowl Week with the teams for a great cause! The Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl Team Luncheon presented by CenterPoint Energy was held at The Hyatt Regency Houston on December 26, 2017. The head coaches spoke about their season and what they were looking forward to regarding the bowl game matchup. Following the lunch, players from each team participated in an informal Q&A session about their excitement surrounding the game and the bowl week activities. All proceeds from this event benefitted DePelchin Children’s Center and the Houston Texans Foundation.
