The Texas Bowl began in 2006 and the matchup currently features schools from the Big 12 Conference and the Southeastern Conference (SEC). The game takes place at NRG Stadium from Houston, Texas. This game was previously called the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas prior to receiving a sponsorship from AdvoCare V100. 

Texas dumped Missouri, 33-16 in 2017 installment, while Baylor rallied past Vanderbilt, 45-38 in 2018, which helped the Big 12 improve to a 5-5 record in the Texas Bowl. The 'under' has connected in eight of the last 12 battles. 

Oklahoma State picked up the backdoor cover with 66 seconds remaining, but Texas A&M kept the home crowd happy at NRG Stadium in Houston with the 24-21 victory as the 'under' cashed for just the second time in the past six Texas Bowls.

The 2020 installment of the Texas Bowl, scheduled for Dec. 31, 2020, was wiped out due to the COVID-19 global pandemic. The game returned on Jan. 4, 2022 at NRG Stadium in Houston as the standalone game between New Year's Day and the CFP Championship Game, with Kansas State routing a shorthanded LSU team by a 42-20 count as the favorite connected. The favorite snapped a 4-0 ATS run by underdogs since the 2015 Texas Bowl when LSU topped Texas Tech as a touchdown favorite.
