The state tourism department is pulling more of its funding from the New Mexico Bowl.

The nationally televised game takes place each year at University Stadium in Albuquerque.

This year, the department is providing $50,000 to the bowl, $100,000 less than last year.

The department said it has given less money each year at the bowl gains more corporate sponsors.
