The New Mexico Bowl is a NCAA sanctioned post-season bowl game that has been played at University Stadium on the campus of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico since 2006. It is now officially known as the Gildan New Mexico Bowl; Gildan, the manufacturer of activewear, became the bowl's first sponsor in 2011. It is typically the first game of the bowl season played on the Saturday before Christmas. The game is currently between teams representing the Mountain West Conference and the Pacific-12 Conference and is televised on ESPN, whose ESPN Regional Television division (also known as ESPN Plus) supervises the bowl activities as one of the six bowl games they run. The game is the only annually nationally televised sporting event in the state of New Mexico. The 2006 contest was the first bowl game played in New Mexico, pitting the MWC's New Mexico Lobos and the WAC's San Jose State Spartans, a game which the Spartans won 20-12. The current champions of the New Mexico Bowl are the BYU Cougars who beat UTEP 52-24 in the 2010 game.
The game trophy is a 20-inch piece of Zia Pueblo pottery, painted with Pueblo symbols, the New Mexico Bowl logo, football players, and the logos of the competing teams. The Zia symbol, a Zia Pueblo symbol that is used in the state flag, is incorporated into the bowl game logo. The most valuable player trophies are crafted from traditional leather shields.
The New Mexico Bowl stays active in the offseason among the nation and the local community. The bowl co-sponsors the Presbyterian Ear Institutes' Run To Break The Silence, a 5K, 10K and 20K fun run at Sandia Resort and Casino. They also team with NCAA Football to put on a free clinic for area youth coached by both New Mexico and New Mexico State coaches.
The 2010 New Mexico Bowl included UTEP from Conference USA, the first time a team from outside the WAC or MWC had played in the game. On November 10, 2010, it was announced that the Pac-12 Conference would provide a team for the 2012 and 2013 New Mexico Bowls, who will face an opponent from the Mountain West Conference.
