Bob Burns Dakota Bowl XL

Forty years of football tradition will be on display at this year’s Bob Burns Dakota Bowl! With the O’Gorman Knights taking on the Washington Warriors, we know the matchup will be exciting. The Knights will be wearing green in honor of their predecessors, the Cathedral Irish, who battled the Warriors decades ago.

Dakota Bowl XL is September 8, 2018 at Howard Wood Field.
Tailgate: 4-6pm
Pre-Game: 6pm
Kickoff: 7pm

Bob Burns dreamed up the idea of opening the 1978 football season with a festive day-long event centered around one thing – a football game against North Dakota’s Fargo Shanley.  The event, he hoped, would provide family entertainment while drawing in enough corporate support to fund the entire O’Gorman Athletic department for a year. It was to be held at Howard Wood Field to accommodate the almost certain huge crowd. Thirty eight years later, the Bob Burns Dakota Bowl is the largest high school bowl game in South Dakota, raising more than $140,000 annually for all of Sioux Falls Catholic Schools! It brings together the Sioux Falls Community to showcase our talented high school athletes and to celebrate football. Families enjoy all day tailgates, football and cheerleading camps for kids, fireworks, airplane flyovers, and even skydivers onto the field. Gather your family and friends for a fantastic day of fun and football at Dakota Bowl!
