Game background

The Dixie Gridiron Classic will feature approximately 90 NCAA Division I FBS and FCS standouts from the Pac-12, Big 12, Mountain West, WAC, Conference USA, Big Sky and Pioneer Conferences in the showcase event, which will pit the Pacific States All-Stars against the Mountain States All-Stars. Head coaches of the Pacific and Mountain squads will included former NFL Players and College Coaches.[1]

Due to the delay of waiting on bowl match ups, and with players and coaches away from schools for the holiday break, the date of the inaugural game was moved to February 5, 2011. All future editions of the game will be played on January 1, as was originally intended.[2]
