The New Orleans Bowl is an annual NFCAA postseason bowl game played between two teams selected by the bowl organizers. It is played at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
In its history the New Orleans Bowl has generally been a high ranking bowl game that has invited some of the most exciting teams onto its stage.
There have been many bowl selectors in the history of the NFCAA, all of whom have helped to push the bowl game into the high ranking position that it currently sits at.
Season 1 saw the coach of Louisiana-Monroe take the scheduling duties for the bowl, before the head coaches for Toledo and Louisiana Tech took on the role in seasons 2 and 3 respectively.
Season 4 had another new NO bowl selector, this time being current South Carolina head coach. He held this position until he left the league whereby current selector Coach Matt took the role starting in season 5 until the present.
The previous iterations of the New Orleans Bowl have provided some exciting and explosive matchups between often very good and equally matched teams.
