GREENVILLE, Ill. - The 2019 NCCAA Victory Bowl™ will feature the Greenville University Panthers and the Olivet Nazarene University Tigers on Saturday, November 23. The game will be played at Greenville's Francis Field. Kickoff is set for 12:30 p.m. CT.
This marks the sixth appearance in the Victory Bowl for the Panthers who enter the game with an 8-2 record. The Tigers, who are 5-5 on the season, will be making their fifth appearance. The Panthers won the 2012 Victory Bowl, while the defending Victory Bowl Champion Tigers have won all four (1997, 2004, 2005, 2018).
The NCCAA Football Committee approved the inclusion of Associate Members due to Greenville being the only Full Member to meet their institutional declaration and have a record of .500 or above. Olivet Nazarene was extended the bid as the top Associate Member per the most recent Massey Football Ratings, also meeting the record requirement.
All student-athletes and coaches will participate in a Christian Service Project and serve the local community. Specific details will be released at a later time.
