Fiesta Bowl Game History:
Since 1971 the Fiesta Bowl has been played at the Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe , AZ. However, with the completion of the new stadium however, the Fiesta Bowl relocated in 2006. The Fiesta Bowl began as a Western Athletic Conference championship game. In 1978 Arizona State became a member of the Pac-10, ending the Western Athletic Conference's participation in the Fiesta Bowl. Instead of leaving the Bowl, ASU took the Bowl with them!
The Fiesta Bowl now is for the Pac-10 teams that did not make it to the Rose Bowl. It is also now an official member of the BCS, as of 1998, giving the team a chance at least to be a contender for the Championship Title Game. It takes place every year on January 2 nd and is covered by FOX and ESPN.

Phoenix University Stadium Background and Information:
The University of Phoenix stadium is a relatively recent addition to Glendale , AZ. Opening in 2006, the stadium was named one of the “10 Most Impressive Sports Facilities on the Globe” by Business Week due to its retractable roof and natural grass field that rolls in and out. It cost $395.4 million for the stadium, $41.7 million for improvements, and $17.8 million for the land to build upon. The stadium sits on an incline, making the retractable roof the first ever to be built on ground that wasn't flat.
