FIU is heading to the St. Pete Bowl on Dec. 20 following an 8-4 regular season.

It's the second straight appearance for the Panthers.  They'll learn their opponent by Sunday afternoon.

The Panthers, coached by Mario Cristobal and led by all-purpose threat T.Y. Hilton, defeated Toledo 34-32 in last year's Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.

This year's bowl will be televised at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
