Tostitos Fiesta Bowl
The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl is an annual college football game played in the United States since 1971. At present, the game is sponsored by Tostitos tortilla chips (a Frito-Lay product), hence the name Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The game was originally hosted annually in Tempe, Arizona at Sun Devil Stadium until 2006. In 2007, the game's venue was changed to the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Previously the game has been sponsored by Sunkist and IBM's OS/2 operating system. In 1998 the Fiesta Bowl became part of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), and every four years was designated for the national championship game. The last such game was in 2003 and as of 2007 it no longer takes part.

History
The Fiesta Bowl was created by the Western Athletic Conference, when despite good performances it was unable to get any high profile bowl invitations for its champions. In 1968 and 1969 respectively, champions Wyoming and Arizona State did not receive any bowl invitations. Despite Arizona's winning record, the following year it was again bypassed by the major bowls and only received an invitation to play at the less prestigious Peach Bowl. When the Fiesta Bowl was created champions of the Western Athletic Conference automatically went on to play in the bowl.

Rise of the Fiesta Bowl
The bowl's inaugural game in 1971 it featured another top-ten team, Arizona State squad against a top-twenty opponent Florida State. By 1975, the game had gained some popularity and attracted the attention of a Big Eight co-champion Nebraska who took part in the bowl to play against undefeated Arizona State. In 1977, the game attracted a top-five opponent in Penn State.In 1978, Arizona and Arizona State each joined the Pac 10 Conference, while the Fiesta Bowl's tie-in with the Western Athletic Conference ended. The game continued to attract high quality matchups and so in 1981 the Fiesta Bowl shifted to New Year's Day with the other major bowl games.

1986 marked a big break through for the Fiesta Bowl when the two teams in the country, Miami and Penn State, agreed to matchup for the game. At the time, the "big four" bowl games, the Cotton, Orange, Sugar, and Rose, already had contracts with the major conferences, with automatic tie-ins for the champions. Since both Miami and Penn State were independents at the time, both the Fiesta Bowl and the Florida Citrus Bowl offered to host the Miami Vs Penn State match, but the Fiesta Bowl won the bidding and the game was set to be played on January 2, a day after the "big four" bowls. Penn State won the game 14-10 over Miami, and it drew the largest television viewership for any game in college football history. Another high profile game was played in 1989 when the number one team Notre Dame played against number 3 West Virginia for the national championship at the Fiesta Bowl. The Fiesta Bowl, had by this time, having hosted games at the national championship level, achieved major bowl status in the minds of college football fans, and replaced the Cotton Bowl as a member of the bowl season's "big four."

The Fiesta Bowl is the only Bowl Championship Series (BCS) bowl to date that has allowed participation of a non BCS member team. In the 2005 game, Utah become the first non-BCS school ever to play in a BCS game. Utah easily defeated Big East champion Pittsburgh 35-7.

In January 2007, the Fiesta Bowl was played at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, along with the new stand-alone BCS National Championship Game. On January 1, the undefeated and untied Boise State Broncos became the 2007 Fiesta Bowl Champions after defeating the Oklahoma Sooners 43-42. The game was labeled one of the greatest college football games of all time.

In 1996 a controversy arose when the 7th ranking team Penn State was chosen to play in the Fiesta Bowl over the 5th ranking team of Brigham Young University which was not invited. In retaliation, a group of students from Brigham Young University, led by BYU professor Dennis Martin, staged a protest by burning bags of Tostitos tortilla chips in a bonfire and called for a boycott of all Tostitos products. Penn State went on to win the game over the Texas Longhorns 38-15, while BYU defeated Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl 19-15.
