Cure Bowl

One of the most recent additions to the college football bowl game schedule, the Cure Bowl was inaugurated in 2015. Featuring a matchup of squads from the American Athletic Conference and the Sun Belt Conference, the Cure Bowl continues a decades-long football tradition at its home at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

In addition to the Camping World Bowl and the Cure Bowl, Camping World Stadium has been the home of the Citrus Bowl since 1947, and also hosted the 2016 ACC championship game and the 2017 Pro Bowl.

Sponsored by AutoNation, the first edition of the Cure Bowl featured a matchup between the San Jose State Spartans of the Mountain West Conference and the Sun Belt Conference’s Georgia State Panthers.

San Jose State running back Tyler Ervin provided the highlight of the night in that contest, returning a punt 85 yards to give the Spartans an early 10-0 lead en route to a 27-16 win as 1-point favorites in just their third bowl game appearance in 25 years. Ervin would go on to be a fourth-round selection of the Houston Texans at the 2016 NFL draft, along with teammate Wes Schweitzer, who was taken in the sixth round by the Atlanta Falcons.

The Cure Bowl featured its first matchup between Sun Belt and AAC squads as the Arkansas State Red Wolves took on the UCF Knights in 2016. The Red Wolves capped a solid second half to their campaign with a dominating 31-13 win as 3.5-point underdogs.

The 2017 Cure Bowl will see the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers take on the Georgia State Panthers. Neither team was very competitive this season with WKU going 6-6 SU and 3-9 ATS while Georgia State went 5-6 SU and 4-7 ATS.
