Hyundai Sun Bowl Betting OddsCollege Football Betting Online: As one of the country’s oldest college football bowl games, the Sun Bowl has a rich tradition that will continue for the 83rd consecutive season. Along with the Sugar Bowl and Orange Bowl, the Sun Bowl is the second oldest bowl game behind only the Rose Bowl. It’s hosted seven of the 10 winningest programs and 30 national champions. We’ve also witnessed close games with 40 Sun Bowls won by a touchdown or less, including seven of the last 12 contests.

The 2017 Hyundai Sun Bowl is scheduled to kick off at 3 p.m. ET from Sun Bowl Stadium in El Paso, TX. For the 50th consecutive season the game will be televised on CBS.

Sun Bowl Format

The first Sun Bowl was played on January 1, 1935 as a fundraising event for underprivileged children in the community and for upgrades to the El Paso High School Stadium. The next year Hardin-Simmons and New Mexico State were invited to play and the game has been a piece of the college bowl season ever since.

During the early years of the bowl it was a tradition to invite the champion of the Border Conference against an at-large opponent. The league had its roots in the southwestern United States with member schools in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

Since 2011 the selection committee has shared teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Pac-12, though the Pac-12 has been represented in 21 of the past 22 games. The only game that the Pac-12 wasn’t involved took place in 2010 when Notre Dame defeated Miami (FL). The conferences first hooked up on December 31, 2011 with Utah beating Georgia Tech in the only Sun Bowl overtime game.

Without agreed on conference affiliations for several years, the Sun Bowl had its pick of teams. Through its first 83 games, the bowl has hosted 78 different programs, the most of any bowl game in the nation. Through the 1957 season the game was played on either January 1 or 2. However, since then, with the exception of the 1976 season game, the bowl has been played in late December.

Keeping its roots close to home, the early Sun Bowls featured teams based in Texas or members of the Border Conference. Texas Tech, Hardin-Simmons and Texas-El Paso have each been involved in multiple contests. UTEP was known as Texas Mines and Texas Western before changing its name in 1967. The Miners are the host school for the Sun Bowl and play their home games in the stadium.

In 2010, Hyundai Motor Company moved into the role as title sponsor, signing on through 2013 and extending the contract through 2019. The bowl also has a long-standing relationship with CBS Sports, which has televised the game since 1968 and will continue through 2019. It’s one of only two college football games on CBS that does not involve the Southeastern Conference.

The Sun Bowl has had major conference affiliations and currently selects bowl-eligible teams from the ACC and Pac-12. The Big Ten was affiliated from 1995 through 2005 and the Big 12 had a brief obligation from 2006 to 2009, as did the Big East. But it’s Texas Tech and UTEP that have appeared in the most games.

The Red Raiders have made a record nine appearances in the Sun Bowl but haven’t played in El Paso in late December since 1993 when the Red Raiders lost their fifth straight Sun Bowl. They’re likely ecstatic that their current conference affiliation won’t bring them back to the Sun Bowl since they’ve lost a record eight games.

The hometown UTEP Miners have the most Sun Bowl victories of any team with five while appearing in eight games. They haven’t played in a Sun Bowl since 1967 when they won their record fifth game by defeating Mississippi 14-7. The Miners are one of three teams to win back-to-back Sun Bowl games, turning the trick in 1953 and 1954.
