As the college football bowl season rolls along, the games keep getting better and better. It’s a very similar phenomenon to how I get better and better looking the more drinks the people around me have. Today’s marquee matchup is the Alamo Bowl, which will feature the 13th ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys (9-3) taking on the 11th ranked Colorado Buffaloes (10-3). It should be a highly entertaining shootout, as Oklahoma State averages 38.7 points per game and Colorado averages 32.8 points per game.
This will be the 24th edition of the Alamo Bowl, and it will be the 10th game with Valero Energy as the sponsor. The Alamo Bowl has always been played in the aptly named Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, but the matchup criteria has changed in recent years. Since 2010, the bowl has pitted the second choice team from the Pac-12 Conference and the third choice team from the Big 12 Conference against each other.
Oklahoma State and Colorado used to face off frequently, as from 1996-2010 they were both members of the Big 12. With Colorado leaving the Big 12 for the Pac-12 in 2011, this will be their first meeting since 2009. Oklahoma State won their most recent contest, beating Colorado in Stillwater 31-28 in 2009. But the Buffaloes still hold the all-time advantage, as they’ve gone 26-19-1 in their 46 meetings against the Cowboys.
Neither of these schools are a stranger to the Alamo Bowl stage, as this will be Oklahoma State’s fourth time and Colorado’s second time playing in this bowl. The Cowboys’ four Alamo Bowl appearances are tied for the most all-time, and they have gone 1-2 up to this point. The Buffaloes’ two Alamo Bowl appearances are tied for the seventh most all-time, and they lost their first Alamo Bowl 31-28 (OT) to Wisconsin in 2002.
Now that you got a little history lesson on this matchup, let’s break down everything you need to know to live stream the 2016 Alamo Bowl.
