History of the USA Football Bowl
Founded in 1995 as the NCAA-compliant Division III Senior All-Star Game, the Division II Cactus Bowl was absorbed in 2010 while the NAIA Victory Bowl was added in 2012 along with FCS players. With the demise of the Casino Del Sol, Raycomm and Texas Vs The Nation games in 2014, the USA Football is recognized by the national media as third behind the East-West Shrine Game and Senior Bowl. Several other "alleged" All-Star Events have been established recently with no media credibility.
Over the last four years, several non-compliant "all-star games" have surfaced that violate NCAA rules and can strip anyone participating of his athletic scholarships.
Family and Friends of the USA Football Bowl players are encouraged to participate in activities of the event. Deep discounted lodging rates are available at the Jackson Regency Hotel & Conference Center, the game's Official Hotel and Media Center.
