bowl games of the past and present

Recommended Posts

What about the walking horse bowl. Where was it played? I remember the 1985 game between Richland And Spring Hill. Richland won I think.

I would guess it was in Shelbyville, since the Walking Horse Festival is there. That's just a guess, though.

It's funny how everyone liked the old bowl games & feels that they were good for high school football. However no schools want to go back to 3 or 4 classifications & 1 divison with the top 2 teams from each district going to the football playoffs.

Here are the bowl games that Fulton High has played in:



1964 Tobacco Bowl Greeneville L 12-7 Greenville

1965 Optimist Bowl Central L 7-0 Knoxville

1966 Jaycee Bowl Loudon W 14-13 Rockwood

1967 Optimist Bowl Morristown W 27-6 Knoxville

1968 Strawberry Bowl Rhea Co. L 13-0 Dayton

1973 Pioneer Bowl Brainerd W 14-7 Chattanooga

1976 Optimist Bowl Newport W 26-0 Knoxville

1977 Clinton Jaycee Bowl Daniel Boone W 50-28 Clinton

1983 Shamrock Bowl Carter W 10-7 Knoxville

1984 Highlander Bowl Cocke Co. L 21-0 Gatlinburg

1990 Veterans Bowl Whitwell W 14-6 Sweetwater

2002 BlueCross Bowl Ridgeway L 21-14 Murfreesboro

2003 BlueCross Bowl Covington W 36-9 Murfreesboro

2004 BlueCross Bowl Greenbrier W 34-6 Murfreesboro


- The Optimist Bowl was held at Evans-Collins field in Knoxville on Thanksgiving and featured the top team in Knoxville versus an top East Tennessee team. It was the premiere bowl game in the area in the 1960s.


In the 1950s the winner of the KFL would get to travel to play in a bowl game in Jacksonville, FL. I believe it was called the Meninack Bowl.


In 1991, Fulton hosted the St. Mary's Bowl. Claiborne Co. defeated Wartburg in the game. Fulton would have played in the game, but they finished the season at 5-4 because of having to drop a game from the schedule when South-Young, Doyle, Holston, and Rule closed. You had to win 6 games that year to get in a bowl game.

Gordon Browning Bowl. 1984


I dont remember where it was, I just remember Collinwood High School playing someone. I was on the Cwood Jr high team and we went to the game.


Any one else know anything about it?

Collinwood played Skyview Academy in the 1983 Gordon Browning Bowl game in Huntingdon and lost 13-0. I was a senior WR at Skyview that year.
