The game featured the Bowling Green Falcons of the Mid-American Conference against the South Alabama Jaguars of the Sun Belt Conference.

This was the first meeting between these two teams.

Bowling Green Falcons

After the Falcons finished the season with a 7-6 record and won the MAC East Division title, they accepted their invite to the Camellia Bowl.

This was the Falcons' third bowl game in Alabama; they had previously won the 2004 GMAC Bowl over the Memphis Tigers by a score of 52–35, and later lost the 2008 GMAC Bowl to the Tulsa Golden Hurricane by a score of 63–7. Coincidentally, the GMAC Bowl (now known as the GoDaddy Bowl) was and is played in Mobile, where South Alabama's campus is located.

This was the first time South Alabama has ever played in a bowl game, seven years after football was approved, five years after the program kicked off, and two years after they joined the Football Bowl Subdivision.
