2015 GoDaddy Bowl Opening Line: BOWLING GREEN -7-110

The GoDaddy Bowl is played annually at Ladd Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama. Introduced in 1999, the game was previously known as the Mobile Alabama Bowl from 1999 to 2000. It was also known as the GMAC Bowl from 2000 to 2010 when its corporate sponsorship was GMAC Financial Services, and then switched to GoDaddy.com Bowl from 2011 to 2013 when Go Daddy took over sponsorship.

From 1999 to 2009, the bowl pitted a Conference USA team against a team from either the Mid-American Conference or the Western Athletic Conference. For the 2010 game the Atlantic Coast Conference was to participate in the bowl as its ninth bowl tie-in. The ACC failed to have sufficient bowl-eligible teams to fill the slot, and the bowl chose Sun Belt conference champion Troy as a replacement. The Mid-American Conference was the other conference tie-in. The game currently matches teams from the Sun Belt Conference and the Mid-American Conference.

In 2001 the Marshall Thundering Herd and East Carolina Pirates set the record as the highest scoring bowl game of all time, and Marshall achieved what was then the greatest scoring comeback in Bowl history. In this contest, Marshall battled back from a 38–8 deficit to win 64–61 in double overtime. The 2008 game became the largest blowout in bowl history, with Tulsa beating Bowling Green, 63–7.

The GoDaddy Bowl announced that Georgia Southern University (8-4, 6-2) from the Sun Belt Conference will face Bowling Green State University (10-3, 8-1) from the Mid-American Conference in the 17th annual GoDaddy Bowl on Wednesday, Dec. 23, 2015, at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:00 pm CST and the game will be nationally televised on ESPN.
