The History

In the year 1977, Arizona State and Arizona quit the Western Athletic Conference to make the switch to the Pacific-8 Conference. The WAC had an automatic bid for the Fiesta Bowl but that now had to be changed, especially because Arizona State used to be the host of the Fiesta Bowl as well. It was decided to give WAC a Bowl bid and that resulted in the inception of the Holiday Bowl.

Big changes

During the first few initial years, the champions of the WAC used to play an at-large side at the Holiday Bowl. Between 1991 and 1994, the second bid was awarded to the Big Ten Conference. The Big Eight then took the place of the Big Ten in 1995 and the Big Eight then went on to become the Big 12 a year later.

The Western Athletic Conference that had an automatic place reserved at the Holiday Bowl had to change plans too. Its bid had to be split with the Cotton Bowl. What that basically meant was that if the WAC Champions had to headline the Cotton Bowl, their place at the Holiday Bowl would be filled by a Pac-10 side. That arrangement ended in the year 1997 when the WAC decided to distance itself from the Holiday Bowl altogether. The game began to be contested between Pac-10 and Big 12 sides.

Between 1998 and 2009, the Holiday Bowl featured the number third seeded Big 12 side and the second seeded Pac-12 team. Alamo Bowl then made a stronger bid and took that arrangement away from the Holiday Bowl. The Holiday Bowl increased the tickets prices to match the Alamo Bowl’s purse and between 2010 and 2013, the Holiday Bowl was contested between the number five team from the Big 12 and the number third team from the Pac-12.

The Big Ten then made a return to the Holiday Bowl in 2014 and signed a contract spanning six years. Because of this arrangement, the Holiday Bowl sees the number three Pac-12 team take on the number four Big Ten side.
