HONOLULU (AP) -- Boise State has accepted an invitation to play in the Hawaii Bowl on Christmas Eve.

The Broncos' opponent for the game at Aloha Stadium has not yet been announced.

Boise State went 8-4 this season under coach Chris Petersen, who was hired last week as head coach of Washington. Assistant head coach Bob Gregory, who has been with the Broncos for five seasons, was named interim coach for the bowl game.

The Broncos are making their 12th straight bowl appearance, and second in the Hawaii Bowl. In 2007, the Broncos fell to 41-38 to East Carolina in Honolulu.
