SANTA CLARA -- Stanford and Maryland will play in the Foster Farms Bowl in Santa Clara, California, on Dec. 30.

The matchup was announced Sunday.

The rebranded bowl will be played at Levi's Stadium, the new $1.3 billion home of the 49ers. The game had been previously been played in San Francisco under various names and title sponsors.

The bowl chose the Cardinal over Arizona State and Utah out of the Pac-12. Stanford went 7-5 this season, which came after winning the conference title the previous two years and making a BCS bowl the last four. Maryland went 7-5 in its first year in the Big Ten, finishing third in the conference's East Division.

Levi's Stadium is about 15 miles from the Stanford campus, while the Terrapins will travel about 2,800 miles.
