We gots us another bowl game.
The American Athletic and Sun Belt conferences will participate in a new bowl game in Orlando, Fla., in 2015, sources said Tuesday.
The addition of the game — it will be called the Cure Bowl and benefit breast cancer-related charities — will increase the number of bowls in 2015 to a record 40, although that includes the College Football Playoff title game, so only 78 bowl teams will be needed.
They still need a TV deal, so that explains the delay into 2015, but I doubt that remains a hold up for too long.
And to think there were twelve less bowls just a decade ago. Between teams jumping up to D-1 and playoff expansion, don’t expect that trend to stop any time soon.
