About the Las Vegas Bowl
Organized by community leaders out of a need to fill hotel rooms during a traditionally slow period in a world-class destination city, the Las Vegas Bowl first kicked off on Dec. 18, 1992.
It has since become one of the Silver State’s premier annual events and has been nationally televised on ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC every year of its existence.
The annual college football postseason event includes an alignment of three top conferences that feature 40 powerhouse brands spanning the nation. The Pac-12 will face a team from the Big Ten this year and also in 2025 and a team from the SEC in 2024.
As part of the historic alignment, last year’s game saw No. 14 Oregon State defeat Florida on December 17 in the first pre-scheduled meeting between the Pac-12 and SEC in a bowl game since 1989.
About the Las Vegas Bowl Huddle
In 2017, a small group of sports-minded women came together to launch the Las Vegas Bowl Huddle.
Created to support the overall mission of the Las Vegas Bowl in the community, the Huddle focuses annually on elevating the bowl’s presence in the market through community activations, youth football, VIP hospitality and memorable bowl week experiences.
Today, the Huddle is over 40 strong and continues to grow its commitment to the Las Vegas community on a year-round basis.
