Cheez-It Bowl History

The Camping World Bowl debuted in 1990 and has had a variety of different sponsors, notably the Russell Athletic Bowl from 2012 to 2016. The game debuted in 1990 at Joe Robbie Stadium in Miami, Florida. The first 11 years of this bowl took place in South Florida under various names such as the Blockbuster Bowl, Carquest Bowl, MicronPC Bowl, and MicronPC.com Bowl. The game moved to the Citrus Bowl in Orlando starting in 2001 as the Visit Florida Tangerine Bowl, then transitioned into the Mazda Tangerine Bowl, followed by the Champs Sports Bowl from 2004 through 2011. 

Camping World took over sponsorship of this bowl in 2017, as teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and the Big 12 Conference are represented.

In 2018, Syracuse outscored West Virginia 17-0 in the fourth quarter to record a 34-18 comeback victory, giving the ACC its second win in the past four seasons in this bowl. The combination of the favorite and 'under' has cashed in three straight in this bowl game. The 'under' has also connected in 12 of the last 14 games, while the losing team has scored 14 points or less in eight of the last 11 games. 

The Big 12 lost for the second straight year as Iowa State was blown out by Notre Dame, 33-9 in the 2019 installment. The Fighting Irish played in this game for the first time since losing to Florida State in 2011.

In 2020, the bowl was renamed the Cheez-It Bowl, a game name previously used in the former Cactus Bowl in Arizona. Oklahoma State of the Big 12 edged Miami (Fla.) of the ACC by a 37-34 score in a high-scoring affair, covering as 1-point favorites as the 'over' easily hit.

Clemson of the ACC topped Iowa State of the Big 12 on Dec. 29, 2021 in Orlando in low-scoring affair, 20-13. The Tigers posted a 10-win season for the 11th consecutive season as a result. The favorite has now cashed in six consecutive Cheez-It Bowls and/or the previously named Camping World Bowl, with the 'under' going 5-1 across the past six.
