Since the first playing of the New Orleans Bowl in 2000, the game has been a season capstone for the Sun Belt Conference. For most of the first 13 games the Conference USA provided the challenger. This year we welcome back the Mountain West. Back in 2011 the Mountain West was represented by San Diego State who fell to the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

This year more games have been added to the college bowl season. The Sun Belt picked up their third bowl tie in with the return of the Camellia Bowl in Montgomery Alabama.
