The Cactus Bowl is moving back to Chase Field. The Phoenix, Az. home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, which hosted the bowl game from 2000-2005, will play host for the next three editions of the game.

The Cactus Bowl has been held at Arizona State's Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Az since 2006. Renovations to the stadium, which are scheduled to completed in 2017, are cited as the reasons for the change of location. (Arizona St. will continue to play in the stadium while renovations are underway.)

The deal with Chase Stadium reportedly includes an option the extend the deal with the Cactus Bowl past the 2017 college football season.

The 2015 Cactus Bowl, held on January 2 of this year, saw Oklahoma State defeat Washington 30-22.
