The Bears (7-5) and Texas (7-5) will meet Dec. 28 at the Holiday Bowl. Kickoff is 5 p.m. at San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium.
Believe it or not, Cal and Texas have not faced each other since 1970.

Here is the Bears’ news release announcing the matchup.

And the complete bowl schedule.
So now the big question:
Would you have rather seen the Bears matched up against someone else — say, Baylor and Heisman finalist RGIII — or are you happy you can vent about and Mack Brown and how he impacted the Bears seven years ago?
