Cactus Bowl to move back to Phoenix's Chase Field

  Oklahoma State beat Washington 30-22 in the 2015 Cactus Bowl.

PHOENIX -- Due to construction work at Arizona State's Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, the Cactus Bowl will be played for the next three years at Chase Field in Phoenix, home of baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks.

The bowl game, which originated in Tucson, Arizona, in 1989, moved to Chase Field in 2000 and was staged there until it moved to Sun Devil Stadium in 2006. When the new contract expired, the game could return to the renovated Sun Devil Stadium.

The Cactus Bowl, operated by the Fiesta Bowl organization, is in the second year of a six-year contract with the Pac-12 and Big 12.

Fiesta Bowl Executive Director Mike Neal said Chase Field, in a revived downtown setting, was selected over a return to Tucson or to University of Phoenix Stadium.
