Teams Announced for Alamo Bowl

Alamo Bowl

The field is set for the 26th Valero Alamo Bowl, which is set to kick off at 8PM on December 28th at the Alamodome, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

The Iowa State Cyclones from the Big 12 will face off against Washington State in an intriguing matchup in San Antonio.

A big crowd is expected at what has become one of the top college bowl games outside of the designated BCS championship games.  

The Valero Alamo Bowl was created in 1993 to bring enjoyment to South Texans, San Antonians and visitors alike while creating positive economic impact, experiences and national attention for the community and participating universities.

The first 25 Valero Alamo Bowls have combined to deliver 1.5 million attendees to the Alamodome, 136 million viewers to ESPN, $105 million to its partner conferences and participating universities as well as $873 million in total economic impact to San Antonio.

The game also gives Washington State Coach Mike Leach the opportunity to coach in the Alamo Bowl.  He was fired by Texas Tech one day before the 2010 Alamo Bowl in a dispute involving the son of TV analyst Craig James.

This year's Alamo Bowl will have to go a ways to top the excitement of last years, when TCU came from behind to beat Stanford 39-37,  

As always, the Alamo Bowl will be televised nationally by ESPN.
