The Insight Bowl is an NCAA-sanctioned Division I-A post-season American college football bowl game played in Arizona since 1989. From 1989 to 1999, the games were played at Arizona Stadium in Tucson. Starting in 2000, the game moved to Bank One Ballpark, now known as Chase Field, in Phoenix. The game moved yet again effective with the 2006 game, but remained in the Phoenix metropolitan area, this time to Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, which was left without a postseason game when the Fiesta Bowl, a member of the Bowl Championship Series, shifted to University of Phoenix Stadium in the western Phoenix suburb of Glendale. The 2006 game saw another change, with the television rights going to the NFL Network, replacing ESPN.

The game was formerly known as the Copper Bowl from 1989 until 1996 when sponsorship and naming rights were assumed by Insight Enterprises and it became the Insight.com Bowl (1997 to 2001), and then the Insight Bowl. It has featured teams from the WAC, the Big 12, the Big East and Pac 10. Starting in 2006, the Insight Bowl began featuring an annual matchup between teams from the Big Ten and the Big 12.

The 2006 game saw the biggest comeback in NCAA Division I FBS postseason history, as Texas Tech came back from a 38–7 third-quarter deficit to defeat Minnesota 44–41 in overtime.
