Valley of the Sun Bowl
Since its inception, the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl has been played in the state of Arizona at three separate venues. For the first ten years, the game was played at Arizona Stadium, on the campus of the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. In 2000, the bowl's organizers moved the game to Bank One Ballpark, a baseball-specific stadium, in downtown Phoenix. Finally, in 2006, the game moved to Sun Devil Stadium at Arizona State University in Tempe to replace the Fiesta Bowl which had moved to University of Phoenix Stadium in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale.
The game was formerly known as the Copper Bowl from 1989 until 1996 when sponsorship and naming rights were assumed by Insight Enterprises and it became the Insight.com Bowl, and then the Insight Bowl. For 2012, Buffalo Wild Wings assumes sponsorship after Insight Enterprises elected not to renew the fifteen-year agreement. It has featured teams from the WAC, the Big 12, the Big East and Pac-10. Starting in 2006, the Insight Bowl began featuring an annual matchup between teams from the Big Ten and the Big 12. Starting in 2014, it will feature a Pac-12/Big-10 matchup.
