The Pineapple Bowl is a now-defunct college football bowl game played in Honolulu, Hawaii at Honolulu Stadium. Played on New Year's Day except in 1950, the Pineapple Bowl succeeded the Poi Bowl. The inaugural game was played in 1940 and the last game was played in 1952. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the bowl game was suspended for five years. The game featured the Hawaii Rainbows and an invited team from the mainland. The rise of the Hula Bowl shortly followed the demise of the Pineapple Bowl. The University of Hawaii attempted to revive the bowl game in 1980, but the NCAA Special Events Committee turned down their request. However, the Aloha Bowl was created in 1982.
