The Game

The seventh-oldest collegiate bowl game in the country, the Citrus Bowl began as the Tangerine Bowl in 1947. The initial game sponsors, members of Elks Lodge #1079 of Orlando, each put up $100 to fund initial expenses.

The game moved to a New Year's Day date in 1987 and has remained a tradition January 1.

Since 1993 the bowl has hosted top teams from the Big Ten and Southeastern conferences.

In the new "College Football Playoff" era of college football's postseason, the Citrus Bowl will continue to host the top Big Ten and SEC teams from outside the CFP series of bowls (including Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange, Cotton and Peach).

In years where a Big Ten team is assigned to play in a non-semifinal Orange Bowl, the Citrus Bowl will host the top non-CFP selection from the Atlantic Coast Conference against the top non-CFP selection from the SEC.

The Organization

Florida Citrus Sports is a not-for-profit organization based in Orlando, Florida and dedicated to increasing community spirit and pride, promoting tourism, stimulating economic development and ultimately benefiting charities, educational institutions and the quality of life in Central Florida through events such as the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl.
