It certainly looks that way. SMU has called a press conference for 1 p.m. on Tuesday to make "an announcement regarding the football program."
The Honolulu Advertiser says SMU will formally accept the bid at that time to the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl on Dec. 24.
SMU is 7-5 and is ending a 25-year bowl drought. The last time the Mustangs played in a bowl, SMU beat Notre Dame in the Aloha Bowl in 1984. That was also the last time the program had seven wins. SMU coach June Jones, who came from Hawaii, has made going a bowl game (and going to Hawaii for the postseason) a goal all year.
We'll have more from the press conference tomorrow.
