Cactus Bowl

Formerly the Insight Bowl and the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, the Cactus Bowl features a Big 12 Conference representative against a representative from the Big Ten Conference. Held at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona, the Cactus Bowl has also formerly been known as the Copper Bowl until Insight Enterprises took over the title sponsorship from 1997-2011. From 1997-2001 the game was called the Insight.com Bowl before dropping the .com part of the name and becoming the Insight Bowl in 2002 through 2011. In 2006 the Insight Bowl was the home of the biggest comeback in college bowl history as Minnesota led 38-7 in the 3rd quarter before Texas Tech came back to win 44-41.
