Little Caesars Pizza Bowl (Formerly The Motor City Bowl)

Beginning in 1997, the Motor City Bowl has been thrilled college football fans across the nation. Held in late December each year, the Motor City Bowl has a new sponsor for 2009 and will now be called the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. The Little Caesars Bowl will continue to be played at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. Always a popular event with a history of big games, big name players and strong attendance figures, the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl matches a Mid-American Conference (MAC) representative versus a representative from the Big Ten Conference. However, in the nine years prior to the 2006 Motor City Bowl, only once has the Big Ten been able to fill their spot in this game. As a result an at-large bowl-eligible school is chosen. Members of the SEC, Big East, Conference USA and the Mountain West Conference have all faced the MAC's representative in the past nine years with the MAC having an overall 5-4 record in those nine Motor City Bowl games.
