The Alamo Bowl began in 1993 and the matchup currently features schools from the Pac-12 and Big 12. This game takes place at the Alamodome from San Antonio, Texas and the latest installment will be played Dec. 29, 2021 when Oregon and Oklahoma lock horns.

TCU rallied past Stanford, 39-37 in the 2017 edition of the Alamo Bowl, as the Horned Frogs came back from a large deficit for the second time in three years against a Pac-12 school.

The 2018 installment of the Alamo Bowl was exciting, coming down to the end. Washington State and QB Gardner Minshew held on for a 28-26 victory, giving them a school-record 11 wins, although Iowa State was able to earn the backdoor cover. The underdog has now covered in each of the past six seasons.

The Big 12 improved to 5-1 in the past six Alamo Bowls after Texas pounded Colorado. It was the second straight season the Longhorns ended the season with success in San Antonio after roughing up Utah 38-10 in 2019 as a seven-point 'dog. 

In 2021, another Alamo Bowl, and another convincing Big 12 victory. The Big 12 posted its sixth win in the past seven Alamo Bowls as Oklahoma boat-raced Oregon 47-32 in a game which was much more lopsided than the final score indicates. After a 6-0 ATS run by the underdogs, the favorite has cashed in each of the past two installments.
