The Ivy Bowl (also known as the Epson Ivy Bowl) was an international college football game played between an American, 43-man all-star team (composed of only Ivy League players) versus a team of college all-stars from Japan.[1] The first Epson Ivy Bowl occurred on January 8, 1989 and the final game occurred at the conclusion of the 1996 NCAA Division I-AA football season.[1] The United States won every match-up. The wins, because they were not between two NCAA-affiliated schools and some of the years were mixed school (all-star) teams [2][3][4][5] do not count toward official win-loss records.

Despite the fact that The College of William & Mary was not a member of the Ivy League, they were chosen to participate in 1988 and 1992 seasons' Epson Ivy Bowls.[6] Long considered a "public ivy", William & Mary was the only true non-Ivy League school to send players to Japan.
