Keystone Bowl History

 

The Great Eastern Football Association's top two teams will meet in the Keystone Bowl to battle for the league championship and the right to take home the Keystone Bowl trophy.

The 20th annual Keystone Bowl game is set for the weekend of July 13, 2024. The game will take place at Kutztown University for the 3rd straight year.

The Keystone Bowl was born in 2005 during the first year of GEFA play. The Susquehanna Valley Stallions took home the inaugural trophy in a blow out, 35-7. In 2014, the Mount Joy Cyclones defeated the DuBois Mountain Lions to take home their first of seven Keystone Bowl trophies. From 2016-2020 the Cyclones began the longest streak of Keystone Bowls in league history, winning five straight.

The Keystone Bowl is the culmination of the GEFA playoffs. Teams earn spots in the postseason based on their overall record during the 10-game regular season. In 2024, the owners voted unanimously to change the playoff format due to a lower number of teams. Instead of eight teams, four from each conference making the playoffs, it was decided that only six teams would make it to the playoffs, regardless of conference, with the number one and number two seeds receiving a first round bye.
