Las Vegas Bowl

Sin City has played host to the Las Vegas Bowl since 1992, following the California Raisin Bowl’s transfer from Fresno the year prior.

Nevada and UNLV combined to make their home state college bowl game five times out of the first nine editions. The Wolfpack went 1-2, while the Runnin’ Rebels put up a perfect 2-0 record – but the Silver State has sent exactly zero teams to the Las Vegas Bowl during the 21st century. That’s a shame too, because after relocating from Bulldog Stadium in Fresno, the game has been held at Sam Boyd Stadium near the UNLV campus.

It also used to host the Blue-Gray Football Classic. In addition, the Cramton Bowl holds the honor of being the first stadium in the South to feature a football game at night under the lights. That was a Sept.

Dollar General Bowl

Dollar General Bowl

Held annually in Mobile, Alabama, since 1999, the Dollar General Bowl was originally conceived as a vehicle for the Mid-American Conference (MAC)

In a clever bit of marketing work, the game was sponsored by General Motors Acceptance Corporation as the GMAC Bowl between 2000 and 2010. From there, sponsorship was transferred to GoDaddy.com (2011-2015), before shifting to discount store Dollar General.

Birmingham Bowl

The game originally matched a team from Conference USA against a team from the now-disbanded Big East Conference. Now the Birmingham Bowl pits the Southeastern Conference against the American Athletic Conference.

Music City Bowl

As the Music City Bowl approaches its 20th anniversary, moneyline bettors can fondly look to the Nashville, Tennessee, staple as college football’s most likely site for unlikely postseason upsets.

The game – which has historically involved a Southeastern Conference squad suiting up against representatives of the Big East (1999-2001), Big Ten (2002-2005) and ACC (2006-present) – tends to invite top teams that happen to have had a down year.

Originally conceived as a way to bring college football bowl game action to Washington, D.C., for the first time, organizers initially planned on branding the game as the Congressional Bowl, but sponsorship by Maryland-based EagleBank resulted in the first two editions of the contest being named the EagleBank Bowl.
