The mission of The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is to provide world-class experiences for college student-athletes, fans, and the local community, culminating in a nationally recognized college football competition. The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is a non-profit organization that strives to inspire youth, engage the community, support local charities, and create positive economic impact in Southern Arizona.
The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is in its fourth year and the Tucson and Southern Arizona communities have been extremely supportive in bringing a bowl game back to the Old Pueblo. The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl was sanctioned in March of 2015 as the 41st NCAA college football bowl game and the third bowl game staged in Arizona.
The Inagural NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl hosted a Mountain West Matchup of the Colorado State Rams and the University of Nevada Wolfpack, with the Wolfpack taking the bowl game’s first trophy. In 2016, the Air Force Falcons defeated Sun Belt Conference opponent, South Alabama, 45- 21. The third iteration brought one of the great stories in all of College Football, as New Mexico State won an overtime thriller 26-20 over Utah State. It was the first post season appearance for New Mexico State in 57 years.
As Tucson’s Football Festival, The NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl is proud to support the Tucson community as a nonprofit organization. Within the last three years, over $500,000 has been donated to local charities. An additional $200,000 in tickets was donated to our Heroes Tribute Program. These heroes included police, teachers, firefighters, active military, and veterans, the true heroes in our community. Thank you, Supporters!
