The first Texas Bowl was held in Houston’s Reliant Stadium on December 28, 2006. The football bowl features representatives of the Big 12 and Big East Conferences.
“Texas Bowl” was trademarked in 1996, so there could be a problem with future “Texas Bowl” souvenirs.
Wikipedia: Texas Bowl
The Texas Bowl is a post-season NCAA-sanctioned Division I-A college football bowl game that has been held for the first time in 2006 in Houston, Texas. The bowl replaces the now-defunct Houston Bowl, which was played annually from 2000 to 2005.
The Texas Bowl
A Celebration of the Culture, Heritage and Football Tradition of the Lone Star State.
A Brand New Bowl Game!
The NCAA awarded a new bowl game to Houston on June 27, 2006. The inaugural Texas Bowl will be played in Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, on December 28, 2006, at 7:00 p.m. The Texas Bowl will feature teams from the Big 12 and the Big East Conferences.
