The College Football postseason used to be one game. In 1923 it was moved to a new big stadium called the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. It wasn't until 1933 that another large scale postseason game was added in Miami. In order to capitalize on the popularity its counterpart was having in Pasadena, the game in Miami was called the Orange Bowl, and later the Orange Bowl Festival. As postseason college football popularity grew, other cities decided to follow suit and the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, the Sun Bowl in El Paso and the Cotton Bowl in Dallas were created. Ever since, the name "Bowl" has stuck.
I has to do with the shape of the stadium.
the name came when in a meeting of NFL and AFL owners, they were trying to come up with a name for the championship game. Kansas City owner Lamar Hunt jokingly said that it should be called the "Super Bowl" because he had seen his daughter play with the "super ball" toy. when the rest thought about this, they saw how it made sense. "super" as in the biggest football championship. and "bowl" because it matched with the college championships' names. (ex. Rose Bowl). Lamar Hunt only meant this as a "stopgag" name until a better one was found. But as you can see it became permanent.
Every level of football has some type of bowl game. A bowl game is just a football game that is played between the two of the best teams in there conference/league. The winner of the bowl game usually takes home a prize of some sort and marks the end of there current season.
The "bowl" name comes from the trophy that resembles a bowl. The Rose Bowl, for example, was the name of the trophy. The game was called the Rose Bowl game. Over time, bowl came to be synonymous with "important football game"
The term "bowl" originated from the Rose Bowl Stadium, site of the first post-season college football games.
