Are You Ready? It’s that time of year again, where all the sweat and tears have paid off; where two teams stand head to head for one final showdown. It’s time for the Hyundai Sun Bowl. It is a true honor for Hyundai to be the title sponsor of the Sun Bowl. There could not be a better place other than El Paso. El Paso truly has everything from diverse cuisines, beautiful weather and one of a kind shopping. Where else can you be miles away from home, but still feel like you are at home? This is Hyundai’s fourth year of sponsorship of the Hyundai Sun Bowl, and we are looking forward to many more years. We have come to expect from the Sun Bowl a great game that every patron and player will never forget; where in those sixty minutes everything is left on the field. Last minute touchdowns, hard-hitting plays and fourth down conversions are just some of the exciting plays that await this year’s Hyundai Sun Bowl. Hyundai of El Paso was established in 2001 as a family run business, and now welcomes the Hyundai Sun Bowl into its family. So sit back, and enjoy great food, exciting entertainment and an even better game. Welcome to the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Sincerely

Oscar Leeser President Hyundai of El Paso

Sun Bowl History This year marks the 80th anniversary of the nation’s second oldest bowl game – the Hyundai Sun Bowl. Since the first Sun Bowl played on January 1, 1935, as a fund-raising event for a local service club, the game has grown into El Paso’s number one national attraction. On October 18, 1934, at a meeting of the El Paso Kiwanis Club, Dr. Brice Schuller suggested that the club sponsor a football game on New Year’s Day matching an El Paso High School All-Star Team against a worthy opponent. The motion was passed unanimously. It was then decided to ask for public suggestions as to the name of this annual game, and the name “Sun Bowl” was submitted by Doctor C. M. Hendricks, who became the first Sun Bowl Association President. The following year a weeklong schedule of events was added to the Sun Bowl festivities, and four other local service clubs (Rotary, Lions, Optimist and Active 20-30) joined the Kiwanis in coordinating the entire “Sun Carnival” calendar. The Sun Bowl Association was founded in 1934 with a threefold purpose: 1) to present a football attraction of national importance, 2) to promote El Paso and the Southwest and 3) to generate tourist income for the area. Last year’s economic impact studies done by Texas Perspectives Inc. revealed that the direct economic impact to this area from the bowl game is over 24 million dollars. In 1936, New Mexico State and Hardin-Simmons Universities were invited to play, and the Sun Bowl has been a college game ever since. During the early years of the Sun Bowl it was a tradition to match the Border Conference Champion against the best available opponent. Today, the Sun Bowl matches the Pacific-12 Conference versus the Atlantic Coast Conference. With the rising costs needed to maintain the game, the Sun Bowl, in 1986, attracted John Hancock Financial Services, as its first bowl title sponsor, becoming the John Hancock Sun Bowl. This marked the country’s first ever corporate sponsorship of a college bowl game. After a two-year hiatus with no title sponsor, Norwest Bank


Sun Bowl History became the game’s title sponsor in 1996. Norwest merged with Wells Fargo Bank in 1999 and the game was renamed the Wells Fargo Sun Bowl until 2003. In 2004, the publicly-traded El Paso based company Helen of Troy became the game’s fourth ever title sponsor and the Sun Bowl was renamed the Vitalis Sun Bowl. After extending the sponsorship contract in 2006, Helen of Troy opted to promote another product in Brut, making the game the Brut Sun Bowl. In June of 2010 Hyundai Motor America signed a four-year contract to become the current title sponsor of the Sun Bowl game. For the last 79 years, the Sun Bowl has featured the color and pageantry that is college football. Seven of the top 10 winningest programs of all-time have participated in the Sun Bowl, and 27 college football championship programs have appeared here as well. Through the years, 37 Sun Bowls have been decided by a touchdown or less, including eight of the last thirteen games. In its first 79 years, the Hyundai Sun Bowl has featured 77 different programs including Notre Dame, Alabama, Texas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Florida, West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Miami (FL), and USC, totaling up to more teams than any other bowl in the nation. The Sun Bowl has hosted some of the greats of the game including Tony Dorsett, Barry Sanders, Don Maynard, James Lofton and more recently Carson Palmer, Kellen Clemons, LaDainian Tomlinson, Jonathan Stewart, Chase Daniel, and Joey Harrington. The gridiron generals have loomed large on the sidelines; Sammy Baugh, Tom Osborne, Barry Switzer, Grant Teaff and Don

8 Nehlen just to name a few. Hall of Famers from across the nation have traveled to far West Texas in late December and early January to leave their mark on this great tradition. The Sun Bowl has produced some exciting and somewhat strange moments as well. In 1974, a freak winter storm the night before the game left a thick layer of frost on the field. The warmth of the morning sun created a rising steam from the field giving that game it’s nickname – “The Fog Bowl.” Seven years ago, Oregon State converted a two-point conversion with 23 seconds left capturing a thrilling 39-38 victory over Missouri. In 2011, the game between Georgia Tech and Utah, led to the first ever overtime Sun Bowl game in history. Fans may also recall Priest Holmes’ four touchdowns in 1994 that lifted Texas over North Carolina 35-31 in what was voted the greatest Sun Bowl ever played. There have been eight times since 1984 that the Sun Bowl has eclipsed 50,000 fans including the 2010 game featuring Notre Dame vs. Miami (FL) (54,021) that took only 22 hours after the teams were announced to sell out. At the end of the 80th edition of the Hyundai Sun Bowl, fans will file out of Sun Bowl Stadium and head home, leaving with another set of lasting memories. There have been many unforgettable moments over the years, but none of them would have ever have been possible if it had not been for the vision of the El Paso Kiwanis Club.
