Fiesta Bowl OddsCollege Football Betting Online: As the youngest of the New Year’s Six bowl games, the Fiesta Bowl has made some impressive strides during its rise to major bowl status. Not only have there been quality opponents matched up in the desert, there have been exhilarating contests as well. Who can forget Boise State’s win over favorite Oklahoma in the 2007 contest. Or the first overtime National Championship game in 2003. The game annually pits top-ranked teams against each other and will do so again at the conclusion of the 2017 season.

The 2017 PlayStation Fiesta Bowl is scheduled for Saturday, December 30, at 4 p.m. ET. ESPN will televise the game from University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Fiesta Bowl Format

The Fiesta Bowl came about after the champion of the Western Athletic Conference failed to receive a bowl invitation in both 1968 and 1969. In 1970 Arizona State went undefeated and felt slighted by not getting invited to a “major” bowl game. Instead, the Sun Devils accepted an invitation to the Peach Bowl, capping their 11-0 season with a victory over North Carolina.

The WAC champion received a berth in the Fiesta Bowl starting with the 1971 season and ASU made the most of it by winning the first three bowl games and four of the first five. In 1978, both Arizona and Arizona State left for the Pac-10, taking the game with them and leaving the WAC without a connection to the Fiesta Bowl.

With no conference tie-ins, the bowl continued to draw high-profile programs. The 1986 season game attracted No. 1 Miami against No. 2 Penn State in what was essentially the national championship game. Both schools were independents at the time and chose to meet in the desert. In 1998 the bowl became part of the BCS and hosted two national championship games. The bowl became one of the New Year’s Six games under the new CFP format and will host a national semifinal in the 2019 season game.

*1978 Fiesta Bowl ended in tie

The Fiesta Bowl experienced a quick rise to major bowl status due in part to its destination and because there were no conference affiliations after the WAC was released in the late 1970s. This allowed the game to invite a number of high profile independent programs and teams that failed to win a conference championship.

A stretch of five consecutive years to close out the decade of the 1980s featured matchups between teams ranked in the AP top-10, further cementing the status of the game as a major player in the bowl lineup. The 1998 season saw the Fiesta Bowl host the first BCS National Championship Game, won by Tennessee 23-16 over Florida State. The bowl hosted the Big 12 champion in years it didn’t have the BCS title game. That arrangement continued until 2013 when the BCS gave way to the College Football Playoff.

In 2007 the game moved to the Phoenix suburb of Glendale into the new University of Phoenix Stadium and the venue was christened with what many call one of the greatest bowl games ever played. Underdog Boise State surrendered 25 unanswered points to Oklahoma, but tied the game late in regulation and won it in overtime with a two-point conversion.

The bowl hosted a CFP semifinal last season with Clemson pitching the second shutout in the game’s history, 31-0 over Ohio State to advance to the CFP title game, which it won over Alabama.

The 2002 season game featured a matchup between Big Ten champ Ohio State and Big East champ Miami. The matchup was a double-overtime thriller with the Buckeyes earning another National Championship with a 31-24 victory. It was the first national title game to play overtime.

Ohio State is no stranger to the Fiesta Bowl, appearing in a record eight games, including the last two. The Buckeyes drubbed No. 8 Notre Dame two seasons ago and were handed their first shutout loss in the Urban Meyer era by Clemson in last season’s game. After their 31-0 win the Tigers went on to defeat Alabama in the CFP Championship game.

Penn State has enjoyed its visits to the desert during bowl season. The Nittany Lions have won six Fiesta Bowls without a loss, defeating six different teams. In all 37 programs have appeared in the bowl with 39 of the 46 games featuring teams ranked in the top-25 of the AP poll.
