Football bowl review
In 2011, the NCAA established a process to ensure football bowls are operated within established NCAA guidelines. For the first phase of the independent review beginning this fall, NCAA staff selected six bowls that are representative of the broad spectrum of current postseason bowls. BKD, LLP, a nationally-known advisory firm, was selected to conduct the reviews. It is anticipated that within a 4-5 year period all NCAA postseason bowls will be reviewed.
2012-13 Bowl Reviews:
- Valero Alamo Bowl
- Tostitos Fiesta Bowl
- Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl
- Heart of Dallas Bowl
- Las Vegas Bowl
- New Era Pinstripe Bowl
