Valero Alamo Bowl

Since its inception in 1993, the Valero Alamo Bowl has developed a growing track record of top ESPN ratings, capacity crowds and exciting games. The 20th Annual Valero Alamo Bowl lived up to its billing as #23 Texas overcame a 10 point second half deficit to beat #13 Oregon State 31-27.

Two dramatic touchdowns from Longhorn wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and a bowl record 4.5 sacks from defensive end Alex Okafor keyed the comeback in front of a standing room only crowd of 65,277. It was the fourth highest attendance in Valero Alamo Bowl history and the fifth capacity crowd in the last seven years. The game was also the seventh game in the last eight where the outcome wasn’t decided until the final two minutes.

Nearly 1.2 million fans have attended the 20 Valero Alamo Bowls. The games have delivered $394 million direct economic impact to San Antonio. The 2012 game brought over 33,000 out-of-town fans and direct spending of approximately $23 million during what used to be the slowest week of tourism of the year. San Antonio received over $1.4 million in measureable media exposure and $1.2 million in incremental tax impacts bringing the 20 year totals to $24.9 million and $28.2 million, respectively.
