2006 Hula Bowl

The Hula Bowl, one of the oldest bowl games, is traditionally held every year after the regular college football season ends. The Hula Bowl All-Star Classic is held in Honolulu, Hawaii at Aloha Stadium around the middle to end of January. Aloha Stadium is home to the University of Hawaii's Warriors and is the most versatile venue of its kind in the state of Hawaii. It is used for concerts, sports games like football and baseball and other staged events. The stadium is physically customized for each individual event with the movable seating and different configurations for different events.

Officially titled the Cornerstone Bancard Hula Bowl, this classic event returns to Honolulu in 2006 after being held in Maui since 1997, for its 60th anniversary. The Hula Bowl, an independently administered event, is said to launch the professional careers of many of its participants. Players are chosen from the East and West regions for a game that pits the two against each other. Coaches are chosen for the event just as the players are, and the event is associated with the American Football Coaches Association and the Downtown Athletic Club, which also awards the Heisman Trophy. Tickets to the Hula Bowl are hot sellers this year with its return to Honolulu, a city every American should visit in their lifetime.

The first Hula Bowl, held January 5, 1946, was a battle between Hawaiian All-Stars and a hand-picked national college team. In early years, the Hula Bowl was very different from its current incarnation. NFL players were allowed to participate in the Hula Bowl All-Star Classic, and it wasn't until 1960 that the event was limited to only collegiate athletes. Later both teams were filled with top players from all over the nation. The Hula Bowl has seen incredible players like Johnny Rogers, Jim Plunkett, Tony Dorset, and Ricky Williams. All were Heisman Trophy winners and made the Hula Bowl the historic event it has become today. In the '70s, famous players like Joe Theismann and Joe Montana competed in the Hula Bowl. By the '80s, Hula Bowl competition became so fierce that eight games of the decade were decided by less than a touchdown. Players like Billy Simms and Dan Marino launched their NFL careers off stellar performances in the All-Star bowl game. From the '90s to the present, the Hula Bowl has become a nationally recognized event that many attend for its exciting combination of the best talent in college football and premier coaches from the NCAA.
