CAMELLIA BOWL HISTORY

The Camellia Bowl bowl began in 2014 and the matchup currently features schools from the Sun Belt and Mid-American Conference (MAC). The game takes place at the Cramton Bowl from Montgomery, Alabama.

Bowling Green captured the inaugural Camiellia Bowl with a 34-38 victory against South Alabama. In the first two games of this bowl game the 'over' has cashed each time, averaging a total of 60.5 points.

Appalachian State won both the 2015 and 2016 editions and both victories came on a late field goal for the Mountaineers. In 2017, it was Middle Tennessee of Conference USA springing the slight upset over Arkansas State, 35-30.

Georgia Southern slipped past Eastern Michigan in 2018, but failed to cover as a short favorite. The Sun Belt made it four wins in five seasons when Arkansas State knocked off FIU as a slight underdog in 2019 as 'dogs improved to 4-2 ATS all-time in this bowl.

In the 2020 version, Buffalo helped the MAC regain some revenge with a 17-10 win over Marshall of the Conference USA. But in 2021, it was Georgia State of the Sun Belt Conference putting it on Ball State of the MAC, winning 51-20 to nearly take care of the 'over' themselves. Favorites have now cashed in each of the past two Camellia Bowls after underdogs went 4-1 ATS in the previous five installments.
