Broncos Top Wolf Pack in Quick Lane Bowl

2021 marked the seventh time Quick Lane has served as the title sponsor of the Quick Lane Bowl. After a brief hiatus in 2020, we were excited to welcome two great teams to Ford Field in Detroit once again.

Though Nevada took an early 3-0 lead, a 100-yard kickoff return touchdown by Western Michigan would set the tone for the rest of the game. The Broncos would go on to earn a decisive 52-24 victory.

We’re looking forward to another great game in 2022.

Getting our helping game on

There’s more to the Quick Lane Bowl than the competition we see on game day. Each year, those involved with this event also give back off the field in big ways that benefit the surrounding community.

Detroit Police Athletic League (PAL)

The Quick Lane Bowl proudly supports the Detroit Police Athletic League (PAL), outfitting young players with new helmets, pads and jerseys to help elevate and advance their own games. Look for players, coaches and members of the PAL program on the field during the national anthem at the Quick Lane Bowl as they form the tunnel for the teams taking the field.

Gleaners Community Food Bank

Prior to game day, the Quick Lane Bowl looks forward to partnering with Gleaners Community Food Bank for a fun and charitable special event. Students, athletes, coaches and staff from each of the participating schools join us at Gleaners Community Food Bank – bagging potatoes, apples and prepared snack bags to support school-based mobile pantries.
