From 1964 through 1972, the Camellia Bowl was one of four season-ending bowls (quarterfinals) in the NCAA College Division, the predecessor of Division II (and Division III). There were no semifinals or finals and the NCAA College Division championship was determined by a poll; the system was revised in 1973 with the creation of Division II and its full playoff structure. That year the Camellia Bowl became the Division II Championship game for three years, and after a four-year hiatus, it was the Division I-AA title game in 1980.
FCS results (West Region Championship, FCS Playoffs)
Since 1981, the NCAA Division I-AA (now FCS) Playoff West Regional Championship (national quarterfinal) is commonly referred to as the Camellia Bowl, in honor of its College Division heritage. The game is played at the highest remaining seed in the West Region, with the winner advancing to the NCAA Division I FCS Playoff Final Four (national semifinal).
