The Celebration Bowl now has a time and a network. The battle between the MEAC and SWAC Champs will take place on in the Georgia Dome on ABC at noon on Dec. 19, ESPN announced on Tuesday.

Both commissioners seem to be looking forward to the platform the network provides

“We are eagerly looking forward to participating in this wonderful opportunity to showcase our student-athletes, coaches, institutions and our conference on this national stage,” MEAC Commissioner Dennis Thomas said. “We are appreciative to ESPN for their continued partnership and commitment to this postseason experience.”

“This stage will provide the nation with a front-row seat into the passion, pride and heritage of the SWAC and HBCU football,” SWAC Commissioner Duer Sharp said. “Our coaches, student-athletes and SWAC fans across the nation look forward to meeting in ATL on December 19.”
