Bowl History
December means more than Christmas lights and jingle bells to San Antonio. Since the first game in 1993, the Alamo Bowl has created excitement and pageantry in San Antonio.

The Alamo Bowl showcases two of the premier conferences in the country, the Big 12 and Big Ten. The Bowl has quickly become one of the most popular bowls in the country, producing seven of the top 20 most-watched bowl games in ESPN history. In 2005, the MasterCard Alamo Bowl featured Nebraska and Michigan in a game that earned a 5.41 rating making it the most-watched college football game in ESPN history as more than 7.8 million viewers saw the telecast.

From NCAA record-breaking performances like Nebraska’s 66 points in 2000 to thrilling finishes like Drew Brees leading Purdue in an 80 yard touchdown drive to overtake Kansas State in 1998 in the final seconds, the Alamo Bowl has something for everyone.

This year the 14th annual Alamo Bowl will be played on Saturday, December 30, 2006 at 3:30 p.m. CST. The game will televised internationally on ESPN HD as well as heard on ESPN Radio and 1200 WOAI-AM. The game between the Texas Longhorns and Iowa Hawkeyes is the third Alamo Bowl sellout in the last five years.
Wikipedia: Alamo Bowl
The Alamo Bowl is a major American college football bowl game played annually since 1993 in the 65,000-seat Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. It matches the fourth or fifth choice (not necessarily fourth or fifth place) teams from the Big Ten Conference and the Big 12 Conference.
The game was previously known as the Builders Square Alamo Bowl (1993–1998), the Sylvania Alamo Bowl (1999–2001) and the MasterCard Alamo Bowl (2002–2005). The logo of the event has evolved to reflect the changes in sponsorship. The game is currently seeking a new title sponsor.
