Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. CST with the preview show slated for 4:30 p.m. The broadcast and region-by-region previews are available through the official Aztec Bowl site.

A first team all-Southern Collegiate Athletic Collegiate selection this year, Pruitt led the Tigers with six interceptions for 69 yards and broke up an additional nine passes. The Ann Arbor, Mich., resident totaled 37 solo tackles and 11 assists, while also forcing a fumble.

He was a Team of the Week selection after recording two interceptions against Centre (the second straight week he intercepted two) and earned the team's defensive MVP honors for his performance in the Monon Bell win over Wabash.
