The Insight Bowl is an NCAA college football bowl game played in Arizona since 1989. From 1989 to 1999, the games were played at Arizona Stadium in Tucson. The game moved to Phoenix in 2000 and was played at Chase Field (formerly Bank One Ballpark) until 2005. After the 2005 playing the Insight Bowl moved to Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, where it has been played ever since. The shift to Tempe filled a void left when the Fiesta Bowl, a member of the Bowl Championship Series which had called Sun Devil Stadium its home since its inception, was moved to University of Phoenix Stadium in the western Phoenix suburb of Glendale. The 2006 game saw another change, with the television rights going to the NFL Network, replacing ESPN. However, ESPN returns to covering the Insight Bowl, for the first time since 2005.[2]

The game was formerly known as the Copper Bowl from 1989 until 1996 when sponsorship and naming rights were assumed by Insight Enterprises and it became the Insight.com Bowl (1997 to 2001), and then the Insight Bowl. It has featured teams from the WAC, the Big 12, the Big East and Pac 10. Starting in 2006, the Insight Bowl began featuring an annual matchup between teams from the Big Ten and the Big 12.

The 2006 game saw the biggest comeback in NCAA Division I FBS postseason history, as Texas Tech came back from a 38–7 third-quarter deficit to defeat Minnesota 44–41 in overtime.
