The Poi Bowl is a now-defunct college football bowl game played in Honolulu, Hawaii at Honolulu Stadium. Played in early January from 1936 to 1939, the Poi Bowl was renamed the Pineapple Bowl in 1940.

The University of Hawaii at Manoa invited teams from the Pacific Coast Conference to participate in the Poi Bowl every year except for 1937, when they had to play the Honolulu All-Stars. The University of Hawaii website does not list their only victory as an official bowl game, but the College Football Data Warehouse website does. The Poi Bowl name was resurrected for one game on January 8, 1945 between a Navy team and an Army Air Force team. By that time, the Poi Bowl of the 1930s had already become the Pineapple Bowl. The Navy team won the game, 14–0.
