 About The Valero Alamo Bowl

The Valero Alamo Bowl is an annual post-season collegiate game featuring the #1 Pac-12 and #2 Big 12 pick after the BCS selections. Last year a standing room only crowd of 65,277 attended the 2012 Valero Alamo Bowl to watch Texas’ 31-27 win over Oregon State marking the game’s fifth sellout in the last seven years and the seventh game in the last eight where the outcome wasn’t decided until the final two minutes. The game earned a 4.8 rating meaning five of the last eight Valero Alamo Bowls now rank among the Top 15 slots for non-BCS bowls in ESPN history in terms of average household impressions.
