V100 Texas Bowl History
College football bowl games have been played in Houston since 1959, when the city first hosted
the now-defunct Blue Bonnet Bowl, which was played form 1959 to 1987. So while the Texas Bowl is technically a different game
altogether than the Blue Bonnet Bowl was, they are both a part of the Houston bowl game history. The first Texas Bowl saw
Rutgers match up with Kansas State for a big matchup that resulted in a Rutgers victory in one of the top games for the program.
The following year, future NFL quarterback Andy Dalton captured the MVP award for the game, as Dalton led the TCU Horned Frogs
to the win. In 2011, current NFL quarterback Ryan Tannehill helped his Texas A&M team win the Texas Bowl, solidifying
this game as the type of matchup in which you can see some of the stars of both today and tomorrow. Put it all together and
it's hard to top the AdvoCare Texas Bowl if you're looking for college football played at the highest level.
