About The Bowl
The Valero Alamo Bowl is an annual post-season collegiate game played in the 65,000 seat Alamodome in San Antonio.
The 2015 Valero Alamo Bowl kicked off a six-year agreement to match up the #1 teams from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences after the College Football Playoff.
This new arrangement delivered the first Top 15 match-up in bowl history as #14 UCLA outlasted #11 Kansas State 40-35 in front of the seventh largest crowd among all of the bowl games and the 5.6 million viewers who tuned into the ESPN broadcast.
