Played since 1999, the game was formerly called the Mobile Alabama Bowl until GMAC became the game's sponsor in 2001. In 2011, the sponsorship changed hands once again, and GoDaddy.com took over.

The 2001 game between Marshall and East Carolina is widely considered to be one of the top 25 college football games ever played. It has the highest scoring game in college football history. Current NFL quarterback Byron Leftwich managed to bring Marshall back from a 38-8 deficit to a double overtime victory of 64-61 over East Carolina.
