Holiday Bowl Game


The DirectTV Holiday Bowl returns for 2023 to Petco Park for another matchup! This year's Holiday Bowl features Louisville against the University of Southern California. After the game, the KGB Sky Show will light up the San Diego skyline over Petco Park with its spectacular and legendary fireworks display.

Fans are encouraged to skip the traffic and ride the MTS Trolley to the game. Fans can take the Green Line to the Gaslamp Quarter Station, or the Blue Line or Orange Line to the 12th & Imperial Transit Center.  Service will run every 15 minutes from all Green Line, Orange Line, and Blue Line stations throughout the day, with Blue Line service between San Ysidro and downtown running every 7.5 minutes. Additional trips will operate as needed after the game. See below for more details on Trolley service for the Holiday Bowl.
