NCAA Bowl Games

 In North America, a bowl game is one of a number of post-season college football games that are primarily played by teams from the Division I Football Bowl Subdivision. The term "bowl" originated from the Rose Bowl Stadium, site of the first post-season college football games. The Rose Bowl Stadium, in turn, takes its name and bowl-shaped design from the Yale Bowl, the prototype of many football stadiums in the United States. In turn, the NFL's "Super Bowl" is a reference to college football bowl games.

Prior to 2002, bowl game statistics were not included in players' career totals and the games were mostly considered to be exhibition games involving a payout to participating teams, which had to meet strict eligibility requirements. The number of bowl games has grown in recent years, climbing to 35 team-competitive games starting in 2010-11. The increase in games allows virtually every team with a non-losing record – twice seeing waivers for teams with losing records – to earn revenue for participating programs and to recruit new players to the teams. With the increase to 39 bowl games in 2014-15, the NCAA has eased the bowl eligibility rules to make teams with a losing record fully eligible to participate without the need to apply for a waiver.
