Texas Bowl - Texas vs. Missouri
Texas holds the all-time lead in this series 15-4.  9 of the 19 games came between 1996 and 2011 as
Big XII conference games.  Texas won that stretch 7-2 although Missouri won the last one.  They met
one other time in a bowl game - the 1946 Cotton Bowl with Texas winning 40-27.

Dec 28th (Thursday):

Military Bowl - Virginia vs. Navy
Frequent opponents between the '30s and the '90s with the last meeting in 1994.  Navy holds the
all-time lead 23-10.  Interestingly, Navy has a 16-5 lead in their home games and it's 5-5 for
Virginia's home games.  This bowl is basically a Navy home game.

Camping World Bowl - Virginia Tech vs. Oklahoma State
A single home-and-home back in 1971 and 1972 with each home team winning.

Alamo Bowl - Stanford vs. TCU
A home-and-home back in 2007 and 2008 with TCU winning both - 38-36 at Stanford in 2007 and 31-14 in
Forth Worth in 2008.  These games were in the early Jim Harbaugh era at Stanford.

Holiday Bowl - Washington State vs. Michigan State
First ever bowl meeting.  A Washington State "home" game in Spokane in '42 was followed by a 2-for-1
favoring Michigan State in '46/'47/'48.  Michigan State hosted Washington State the last three times
they played - '54, '70, and '77.  Michigan State leads the all-time series 5-2, the same split they
have in home games hosted.
