Bowl Kicks Off December 29

The 29th annual Valero Alamo Bowl will be played at the 65,000 seat Alamodome in San Antonio on Wednesday, December 29 in an exclusive primetime window on ESPN. Kickoff time will be 8:15 p.m. CST.

Matching up the top teams from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conference after the CFP selections, the 2021 Valero Alamo Bowl will kick off for the second straight year (and 13th time in bowl history) on December 29. 

“The Valero Alamo Bowl is excited to plan for a more normal 2021 season culminating with two outstanding Big 12 and Pac-12 conference teams and their fans enjoying everything a bowl trip to San Antonio has to offer,” said Clay Jett, Chair of the 2021 Valero Alamo Bowl. “In addition to driving visitation and showcasing our city to millions of viewers on ESPN, our ability to host our typical crowd coupled with the outstanding support of Valero and our existing and new corporate partners will allow us deliver increased scholarship giving to deserving San Antonio students.”

Last year, 153 San Antonio area high school seniors and college students split $1,070,000 in Valero Alamo Bowl scholarship awards. Since becoming title sponsor in 2007, Valero has helped fuel the growth of the Bowl’s scholarship giving from $78,000 per year to its current total which ranks #1 in local scholarship giving among all the bowls.
