ACC ANNOUNCES BOWL AGREEMENTS FOR 2020-25

GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – The Atlantic Coast Conference on Thursday announced a new six-year bowl lineup, beginning in 2020, which includes the addition of the San Diego Credit Union Holiday Bowl and the newly created bowl game in Boston. The lineup features bowl games across the country with outstanding matchups in Alabama, California, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina and Texas.

 

The bowl agreements are in addition to the College Football Playoff, which has featured an ACC team every year since it began in 2014.  An ACC team will also compete annually in the Capital One Orange Bowl in years it is not hosting a CFP semifinal game.  The Capital One Orange Bowl has been ‘Home of the ACC’ since 2007.

 

The ACC has reached agreements through 2025 with the Belk Bowl, Camping World Bowl, Hyundai Sun Bowl, Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman, New Era Pinstripe Bowl, San Diego Credit Union Holiday Bowl, TaxSlayer Gator Bowl and the new game in Boston, which will be named later this fall. The league will also send a team to either the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl, Birmingham Bowl or SERVPRO First Responder Bowl on an annual basis.

 

Additionally, the ACC will send a team to the Outback Bowl if the opponent in the Orange Bowl is from the Big Ten.
