“I’ve said many times that our ambitions at Barstool is to own the moon,” Barstool President Dave Portnoy said in a press release. “This is a major breakthrough in that regard.”
The Arizona Bowl, which typically features teams from Conference USA and the Mid-American Conference, has been around since 2015.
Nova Home Loans sponsored the game from 2015-19 before Offerpad took over for the 2020 season.
Ball State defeated San Jose State 34-13 in the most recent edition of the game, held on Dec. 31, 2020.
