The TicketCity Cactus Bowl, formerly known as the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, The Insight Bowl and the Copper Bowl will be moving to Chase Field next year according to Brett McMurphy of ESPN
Cactus Bowl (Big 12 vs. Pac-12) moving to D-backs’ Chase Field for next 3 years, sources told @ESPN— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) May 4, 2015
The bowl was first held at Arizona Stadium in Tucson from 1989-99, then moved to what was Bank One Ballpark from 2000-05 and then it was held at Sun Devil Stadium from 2006-15. Now the game will return to Chase Field next season.
It currently pits the No. 5 Big-12 team against the No. 6 Pac-12 team. The game needed to be moved because of upgrades being made to Sun Devil Stadium. It most recently hosted Oklahoma State and Washington on Jan. 2, 2015 with the Cowboys winning 30-22. The Pac-12 is 7-1 all-time in the bowl, the Big 12 is 10-5.
This is now the fourth bowl game played in an MLB Stadium. Please invite us if you end up with pool tickets to the game.
