HistoryEdit

Montgomery's Cramton Bowl stadium had hosted the Blue–Gray Football Classic from 1939 to 2001, and the stadium was renovated in 2011. With Raycom Media as a sponsor,[2] the All-Star Classic provided seniors not playing in the Senior Bowl with an opportunity to be seen by scouts in advance of the 2013 NFL Draft.[1] Ten players in the game were eventually drafted.[3]

In August 2013, city officials announced that a new traditional bowl game would be played in Montgomery, starting in 2014, between teams from the Sun Belt Conference and Mid-American Conference.[4] As that game, the Camellia Bowl, would be sponsored by Raycom Media and played at the Cramton Bowl,[4] the All-Star Classic was discontinued.
