The NCAA Division III all-star roster known collectively as Team Stars & Stripes will fly to Mexico on December 15to prepare for the game. The graduating college seniors will travel to Monterrey for a combination of two-a-day practices with an opportunity to explore the local region. They will experience the local culture and participate in a community service project. In 2012, the traveling group helped clear an area of land to benefit an impoverished neighborhood to make it more suitable as a play area for the community's children, and then held a football clinic for local youngsters.

The Tazón de Estrellas and its forerunner the Aztec Bowl have produced a series of exciting games and established a fierce but friendly rivalry between the Americans and Mexicans. The Tec Monterrey All-Stars won 24-12 in 2009 before Team Stars & Stripes leveled the series with a 48-7 victory in Toluca in 2010 and the CONADEIP All-Stars won by a margin of 45-27 in 2011. It was the turn of the Americans to triumph in 2012 by a score of 32-15 to level the series at 2-2.

Cesar Martinez, who took over the head-coaching role at Tec de Monterrey from legendary retired coach Frank Gonzalez, will coach the CONADEIP All-Stars.

Three current NFL stars - Pro Bowl linebacker London Fletcher (John Carroll University) of the Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson (Coe College) and Miami Dolphins linebacker Jason Trusnik (Ohio Northern) - played in the Aztec Bowl predecessor of the Tazón de Estrellas.
