Citrus Bowl A Rich History
Citrus Bowl A Rich History

quote:

The Citrus Bowl, officially the Citrus Bowl presented by Overton's for sponsorship purposes, is an annual college football bowl game played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida. It was previously known as the Tangerine Bowl (1947–1982), the Florida Citrus Bowl (1983–2002), the Capital One Bowl (2003–2014) and the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl (2015-2017). The bowl is operated by Florida Citrus Sports, a non-profit group that also organizes the Camping World Bowl and Florida Classic.

I always thought it was kind of lame to name it the Citrus Bowl when there was already an Orange Bowl.

Didn't it used to be called The Tangerine Bowl?

the 2004 iowa and 2010 penn state should be the citric acid bowl. I still burns my throat and upsets my stomach.

After his retirement from LSU, Charlie McClendon became the executive director of the Tangerine Bowl, now renamed the Citrus Bowl, from 1980 to 1981.

History (Citrus Bowl)

In 1986, it was one of the bowl games considered for the site of the "winner take all" national championship game between Penn State and Miami, before the Fiesta Bowl was eventually chosen.
The 1990 season game had national championship implications; Georgia Tech won the Florida Citrus Bowl, finished 11–0–1, and were voted the 1990 UPI national champion.
The 1997 season game, which featured nearby Florida beating Penn State, holds the game's attendance record at 72,940.
In 2004, the bowl bid to become the fifth BCS game, but was not chosen, primarily due to the stadium's aging condition. In July 2007, the Orange County Commissioners voted in favor of spending $1.1 billion to build the Amway Center for the Orlando Magic, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, and to upgrade the Citrus Bowl stadium.

yes

When Orlando's soccer team moved in, they did some renovations.

The stadium is NOW very nice. I was there for our games in 2004 and 2010. The place (and field) looks completely different now.

No mention of Manning and Tennessee? They went there a lot if you ask the HBC!

I believe his final game was in that bowl vs Wake Forest.
It is the first memory I have of a football game, his final game. Couldn't tell much about the game, other than we won and where I watched the game, but I was 6.

didn't know that. I do know he became the executive director of the college coaches association. he was the driving force for getting a 401k plan installed for assistant coaches. in those days assitants were not highly paid and had no retirement and could be fired with no buy outs. those guys were making in the 10-20k range and had to move their families often. often they didn't stay long enough to be vested in any state retirement plan (which was 10 years in those days). Chollie Mac did more for assistant football coaches than any other person and was beloved by those guys all over the country.

man have times changed. Aranda knocks down close to 2 mil/yr.
