Bishop to Play in Hula Bowl
Nevada senior tight end Adam Bishop has accepted an invitation to play in the Hula Bowl, head coach Chris Ault announced Tuesday.
“We’re very pleased for Adam,” Ault said. “This is a neat opportunity for him and I am glad to see him get this recognition.”
Bishop was a second-team All-WAC selection this season and was named the team’s Outstanding Offensive Player in voting by his teammates and coaches. He caught 14 passes on the year with seven of them going for touchdowns. He also helped blocked for the WAC’s leading rushing attack and the league’s leading rushing in Luke Lippincott.
“I am very excited to have the chance to play in the Hula Bowl,” Bishop said. “It is a great opportunity for me to get a chance to play in this game.”
Bishop will conclude his Nevada playing career on Dec. 22 when he leads the Wolf Pack against New Mexico in the New Mexico Bowl on ESPN.
The Hula Bowl will be held Jan. 12 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. Coaches for the game include Illinois coach Ron Zook and Oregon State coach Mike Riley.
Bishop is the second Nevada player to accept an invitation to a postseason all-star game. Linebacker Ezra Butler will play in the annual East-West Shrine Game.
