TVUNetworks to Webcast 2009 Valero Cactus Bowl

MARYVILLE, Mo. - Follow Bearcats Reid Kirby and Tom Pestock with TVUNetworks as the two participate in the 2009 Valero Cactus Bowl. Kick-off for the Division II senior all-star game will take place tomorrow at 6:35 p.m. from Javelina Stadium in Kingsville, Texas.

The game will be produced locally by the Lone Star Sports Channel, an affiliate of Fanz-TV. Fans can easily view the game through an embedded video player at NorthwestBearcats.com. Viewers are encouraged to log in early in order to download the TVUNetwork player and related files prior to the 6:35 p.m. kickoff.

Kirby and Pestock are two of the 10 MIAA players selected to the East Team of the Cactus Bowl. The East won last year's game 42-13, when Northwest linebackers Matt Robertson and Jared Erspamer combined for 13 tackles.

The Cactus Bowl started as the Snow Bowl in 1991, when it was played at the Fargodome in Fargo, N.D. The game moved to Kingsville in 2001 where it became the Cactus Bowl. The bowl was suspended in 2007, but resumed in 2008.
