Boca Bowl must be close to being done.
ESPN owns 9 bowls, wants to add Heart of Dallas & new one in Boca Raton. If so will own 11 of 31-non @CFBPlayoff bowls— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) August 19, 2013
I guess it isn't weird that ESPN owns these bowls. It's like any other network paying for its own programming.
fauowls44 saidWho cares which network owns the bowl as long as it happens? A Boca Bowl would be great for the city and FAU.
IMO, FAU Stadium is perfect for some of these smaller bowls ….
Conference USA to participate in new bowls in Bahamas and Boca Raton, sources say - ESPN
Hey, you, college football fan, you like bowl games, right? Good thing, because college football is reportedly about to add two more to its already well-stocked roster.
ESPN reported Tuesday that bowl games in both the Bahamas and Boca Raton, Fla., will be played in 2014, raising the number of games to at least 38. The Bahamas Bowl will be held in Nassau, the island nation's capital, and will be the first bowl game played outside the United States since Toronto's International Bowl folded following the 2010 season.
Both games will feature teams from Conference USA, with the Bahamas Bowl expected to pair the C-USA representative against one from the MAC, ESPN reported. The Boca Raton game will feature the C-USA against a team from the American Athletic Conference, Mountain West or MAC.
With four other primary bowl agreements announced Tuesday, C-USA will boast six such agreements starting with the 2014 season, as wel las partial tie-ins with other bowls.
Per ESPN, the Boca Raton game – which does not as of yet have a title of title sponsor – will be played at FAU's 29,000-seat on-campus stadium
