Collection Historical Note

The Oyster Bowl is a college football game held in the regular season at Old Dominion University's Foreman Field in Norfolk, Virginia. It began in 1946 as an annual fundraising event for the local chapter of the Khedive Shriners. The Oyster Bowl was not held in 1947, but it returned in 1948 as an annual event until 1995. Financial constraints saw a discontinuation of the game from 1996 until 1999 when it resumed once again.
