The Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl is a college football game that takes place in Salem, Virginia. This bowl game has been played at the "Salem Football Stadium" between varsity college teams since 1993, but its legacy long surpasses the stadium at Virginia. Before that, the matches were played in Alabama’s Phoenix City since the 1980s. Ever since the move, two teams have risen as victors and ultimately arch rivals. They are the Wisconsin-Whitewater, who have won four games and are the current title holders, and Mount Union, the three time champions who are looking to seize the championship this time around. In any case, both teams will take the arena all guns blazing, which will make for a thoroughly entertaining game for anyone who watches live.

The bowl is named after one of the most celebrated college coaches in American football—Amos Alonzo Stagg. He himself was an athlete, who devoted his post retirement life in training up and coming talent. He started out as the head coach at the "Springfield College" in 1890 and then went on to share his talent at "University of Chicago" in 1892. He finally managed to train a team to national championship in 1913 when he worked with the "Chicago Maroons". His rostrum did not end at football; he was a complete athlete and would coach baseball and basketball as well. His talent as a motivator and trainer is what made him so diversifiable.
Stagg’s own career as a college football player was quite decent. He received an Ivy League education because of the scholarship he received for his talent, and became the end position player for the "Yale University" football team. He also made the "College Football All-America Team". He is an inductee of the "College Football Hall of Fame", both as a coach, and a player. He was the only one to hold this honor for many decades until the 1990s. He was also inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame
as a coach. Today, the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl is played by university teams in his honor.
Stagg is still known today as a big contributor to sports, and for giving college football the rise it has received today. College games are now televised and watched with the same vigor as regular football matches. Moreover, because of the exposure the young players receive, the ones with most talent are easily picked up by the NFL.
For this year’s game, Mount Union has been receiving a lot of press attention as they are more likely to be on the attack, trying to recover their past glory. While it is expected that the final showdown will be between them and the Wisconsin-Whitewaters, the Unions have not managed a win since 2008. Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl tickets
