Extinct bowls

In recent years, bowls such as the Humanitarian, Music City, Motor City and Alamo have taken their place along the traditional ones such as the Rose, Sugar and Orange. While some people complain about the quantity of bowls currently being played, there are a number of others that tried to take their place with the old standbys but failed for one reason or another.

Here is a list of some of the extinct bowls that have gone the way of the do-do and into the depths of college football history.
