Dixie Bowl

The Dixie Bowl was a post-season college football bowl game held New Year's Day at Legion Field in Birmingham, Alabama. The game was only held twice, following the 1947 and 1948 seasons, after which it was discontinued. Birmingham and Legion Field have since played host to a number of other bowl games including the Hall of Fame Classic, All-American Bowl and the BBVA Compass Bowl. Baylor hosted Wake Forest and beat them 20-7. Now in 2010, Legion Field is where the UAB Blazers play football.

Both games featured teams from the Southern Conference and the Southwest Conference, with the SWC representative winning each one.

Famous quotes containing the word bowl:

    It all ended with the circuslike whump of a monstrous box on the ear with which I knocked down the traitress who rolled up in a ball where she had collapsed, her eyes glistening at me through her spread fingers—all in all quite flattered, I think. Automatically, I searched for something to throw at her, saw the china sugar bowl I had given her for Easter, took the thing under my arm and went out, slamming the door.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
