Number of bowl teams per state.

The 1934-35 NCAA College Football Bowl Games were the first to feature the Sugar Bowl and the Orange Bowl, which would complement the only previous annual post-season game, the Rose Bowl. The Orange Bowl was hosted by the local team, the Miami Hurricanes, who would face the invited Bucknell Bison. Likewise, the Sugar Bowl was also hosted by the in-town team (the Tulane Green Wave), and also invited a Pennsylvania club as their opponents (the Temple Owls). The Rose Bowl featured two national powerhouses, the Stanford Indians of the West and the Alabama Crimson Tide from the South. Alabama's victory would seal their undefeated season and end Stanford's, leaving Minnesota the only other undefeated team in the nation.
