Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/RICK MCFARLAND --01/06/13-- Arkansas State new football coach Bryan Harsin comes in with the team as they arrive for their game against Kent State in the GoDaddy.Com Bowl in Mobile, Ala. at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile on Sunday. Arkansas State accepted a third straight bid to the bowl on Monday afternoon.

Arkansas State is headed back to Mobile, Ala.

The Red Wolves accepted a bid to the GoDaddy Bowl for the third straight season, according to the bowl’s official Twitter account. The game will be played Jan. 5 in Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

“Arkansas State University @RedWolvesFBall has accepted an invitation to represent @The_Sun_Belt in the 15th Annual #GoDaddyBowl,” the @GoDaddyBowl account tweeted Monday afternoon.

The Sun Belt Conference also sent out a corresponding tweet from its official account a short time later with the news. Several Arkansas State players also sent out tweets announcing the bid.

The invitation is the program’s third under three coaches in three consecutive seasons. The Red Wolves finished the 2013 regular season 7-5, with a 5-2 record in the Sun Belt Conference.

In two previous trips to the GoDaddy Bowl, Arkansas State lost 38-20 to Northern Illinois in 2011 and beat Kent State 17-13 in last year’s contest.

The game usually pits a team from the Sun Belt against a team from the Mid-American Conference.

4 coaches in as many years and bowl games in three of them. Maybe that merits some praise from everyone? Congratulations to them.
