What is now known as the GoDaddy Bowl began as the Mobile Alabama Bowl in 1999. In 2000, it became known as the GMAC Bowl through 2010 and then the GoDaddy.com Bowl until the 2014 game, when it becomes the GoDaddy Bowl.
• The bowl is the home to both the highest-scoring bowl game of all time and the greatest scoring comeback in bowl history. Both happened in the same game. In 2001, Marshall dug itself out of a 38-8 hole to defeat East Carolina 64-61 in double overtime. Marshall quarterback Byron Leftwich piled up 576 passing yards that night.
• In 2007, the game hosted the biggest blowout in bowl history. Tulsa QB Paul Smith set an NCAA record with his 14th consecutive 300-yard passing game.
