The association of the bowl game with everything citrusy started way back in 1947 when it was established as the Tangerine Bowl. At the time of its inception, the only other bowl games that were played were the Gator Bowl, Cotton Bowl Classic and the Sun Bowl. The game became known as the "Little Bowl with the Big Heart," especially since the revenue generated from the ticket sales went towards charitable causes. The early conference tie-ins featured the conference of OVC till 1967 and then the Mid-American Conference and the Southern Conference from 1968 to the mid-seventies. Watching the 2013 Capital One Bowl game is gearing up to the first New Year's resolution on every football fan's list so make it yours too.
The bowl game was exclusively titled as the Florida Citrus Bowl in 1983 and kept on being called so up till 2002 when it was rebranded as the Capital One Florida Citrus Bowl and then simply Capital One Bowl in 2003. Interestingly, the bowl game has had its fair share of racial controversy as during the 1950s, African-American players were barred from participating. These black players were part of the teams from Hillsdale College and the University at Buffalo. It would not be till 1966 following the civil rights movement that Morgan State became the first historically black academic institution to not just play in the Tangerine Bowl but also emerge victorious after defeating West Chester State.
The first team to clinch the Capital One Bowl was Catawba back in 1947 who gave a repeat performance the following year. The team with the most bowl wins, 4, is the Tennessee Volunteers who are also amongst the teams that have made the most appearances in the game, having made it to the finals five times. Teams also with five appearances but three wins include Georgia Bulldogs and Auburn Tigers. Since the early 1980s, the ABC network has been the primary broadcaster of the bowl game, with ESPN taking over from 2011 onwards.
