The new venue means less travel for Northern California teams. Hornet Stadium has a seating capacity of 21,195.
"The CIF is pleased to bring the bowl games to Sacramento State," CIF Executive Director Roger Blake said. "We are excited to be holding this event at a facility which has hosted events such as the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships and will allow for a memorable experience for our student-athletes."
Pending the approval of the proposed revision for CIF regional and state championships, which would increase the number of bowl games from five to eight, Hornet Stadium would serve as the main host site with the use of other venues possible.
