FIND THE ANSWERS To frequently asked questions

Why is the game played in the Madison, WI area?

Madison, Wisconsin is the best geographical location for the universities and colleges in the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin (CCIW) and Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (CCIW). All potential qualifying schools are within 60 - 370 miles of Madison, WI, and it's centrally located for both conferences.

How are the teams selected to compete in the Isthmus Bowl?

The Isthmus Bowl is different from a typical bowl game where the teams are normally invited, like Division I (FBS) bowl games. This is a game where the potential participating teams qualify for through conference standings, final record, Pool A, and Pool C (at-large bids) to the NCAA tournament. The Isthmus Bowl invites the best team from the CCIW and WIAC that doesn't qualify for the D3 football tournament.

Why is it called the "Isthmus Bowl”?

Downtown Madison, Wisconsin is on an "isthmus," which is a narrow strip of land with water on both sides, forming a link between the two larger areas of land. Hence, the Isthmus Bowl was born due to the connection to downtown Madison.
