YUMA, AZ – Arizona Western College, the Caballeros de Yuma and the Matador Athletic Association are proud to announce that the 2013 Fisher Automotive El Toro Bowl will feature the Arizona Western College Matadors and fellow WSFL members, the New Mexico Military Institute Broncos. The announcement comes just 25 days before the two teams will take the field at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Yuma on Saturday December 7 at 1PM.
The visiting NMMI Broncos come into this year’s game with a 7-4 record and are 5-3 in WSFL play. The Matadors will enter the game with a 2-9 overall record and 2-7 in WSFL play due to the NJCAA sanctions against the program for a minor infraction dealing with transfer waivers. Without the sanctions, the Matadors would also have an overall mark at 7-4.
These two teams met back on October 12 at Veterans Memorial Stadium, with AWC getting the best of NMMI as they topped the Broncos 41-21. The Broncos will be looking for revenge against the Matadors in this year’s Fisher Automotive El Toro Bowl, while AWC is out to prove their victory on October 12 was no fluke.
Following NMMI’s acceptance into the bowl game, the WSFL set a league record with five teams being invited to a bowl game this season.
