In 1993 and 1994, the Alamo Bowl matched the Southwest Conference vs. the Pac-10 (Iowa was an at-large selection in 1993 as the SWC could not provide a bowl eligible team). From 1995-2010, the Valero Alamo Bowl matched the Big Ten vs. the Big 12.

Starting in 2010 the Valero Alamo Bowl paired the Big 12 vs. the Pac-10 (now Pac-12). Through the 2014-2025 college football seasons, the Valero Alamo Bowl will match up the #1 teams from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences after the College Football Playoff selections.
