The East/West Bowl is an annual college football bowl game played since January 1994. One of the last games of the college football season, it matches up exceptional players from Eastern schools against outstanding players from Western schools (although where exactly the line between East and West is drawn has been disputed, and has led to controversy). It has always been hosted on the second Friday in January. Traditionally, the East team wears red while the West wears blue. Originally the bowl had no sponsor, but since 1996 the game has been sponsored by the Daniel R. Smith Foundation. Since its inception, the East has only won the game twice--in its inaugural season and in 1997, both very close games. Otherwise the West has dominated.
Dave Stassen and Jeff Worthing have commentated all games since 1994.
While not a very prestigious bowl and usually considered a fun end-of-the-season exhibition game, the game still has an MVP award, won by various players over the years.
