Three universities will be represented in Tuesday’s AdvoCare V100 Bowl in Shreveport, La.

In the gridiron matchup, Arizona will face off against Boston College at Independence Stadium. But at halftime, the Boston College marching band will share the spotlight with Northwestern State’s marching band, who has been hired to fill in for the Arizona band, according to Fox 33 News in Shreveport.

The university, which located in Natchitoches, La., south of Shreveport, is well-acclaimed and expenses for the band, along with additional support, will be provided by Arizona.

“We are glad to have this opportunity to both showcase our band and help give the University of Arizona football program and its fans the best possible bowl experience, said Northwestern State Director of Bands Dr. Jeffrey C. Mathews. “Our band is excited about doing this. And we’ll be dressed in cardinal red and navy blue on Dec. 31. We have been working with the staff at the University of Arizona to learn about their game day performances and what they do to support the Wildcats.”

Kickoff is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 31.
