The GAC has a tie-in with the Live United Texarkana Bowl in which the highest non-playoff team will receive an automatic selection to the game. The C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl began a Division II game in 2012 with the GAC receiving the at-large selection in each of the first four years of the game. The Corsicana Bowl which began in 2017 has a at-large selection option with the GAC.
The Live United Texarkana Bowl, known under a naming rights agreement as the Agent Barry Live United Bowl, is a college football bowl game played annually in Texarkana, Arkansas between teams from NCAA Division II. It is one of four NCAA Division II sanctioned bowl games, the other three are the Mineral Water Bowl, the Corsicana Bowl, and the C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl. Profits from the game are donated to the United Way of Greater Texarkana. The game selection committee selects one team from the Great American Conference and one from either the Lone Star Conference or the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association; the MIAA and LSC were previously tied into the Kanza Bowl, which played from 2009 to 2012. The bowl is unusual in that an individual person, agent Dean Barry, owns the naming rights to the event and named it after himself.
The C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl is the name for two annual American football bowl games played in Central Texas.
The Corsicana Bowl is an annual NCAA Division II post-season college football bowl game held in Corsicana, Texas at Tiger Stadium. The two participating teams will consist of schools competing in the Lone Star Conference, Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association and/or the Great American Conference. The inaugural game was held on December 2, 2017 with Central Oklahoma defeating Tarleton State 38 to 31.
