The Valero Alamo Bowl is an annual post-season collegiate game played in the 65,000 seat Alamodome in San Antonio. Last year’s Valero Alamo Bowl was the second of a six-year agreement to match up the #1 teams from the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences after the College Football Playoff. Both years have delivered Top 15 match-ups and competitive games highlighted by TCU’s record comeback to beat Oregon 47-41 in triple overtime. In addition to a capacity crowd, the game featured a bowl record peak viewership of 10.9 million and a $45.8 million total economic impact on San Antonio.
The Valero Alamo Bowl has produced seven of the Top 25 most-watched non-BCS/non-CFP broadcasts in ESPN history. This season the Valero Alamo Bowl is projecting a $72 million total economic impact on San Antonio and record local scholarship giving of over $500,000 as the organization will host two games. The Shamrock Series between Notre Dame and Army will kick off on Saturday, November 12 at 2:30 p.m., while the bowl game occupies a prime time slot unopposed from any other games on Thursday, December 29 at 8:00 p.m.
