Another Bowl Game opportunity for FAU and the Belt.

This makes 4 bowls possible for Belt Teams.

2 are gurnateed (GMAC and NOBowl) and 2 we are named as primary back up (St Pete and Little Ceasers)

To be clear the 2 back up's are VASTLY different from the Memo of Understanding that we had in 08.  These bowls will HAVE to take a Sunbelt Bowl elligilbe team (6-6) over a better record At large canidate if the primary can not fullfill its obligation.

Sunblet is making PROGRESS!

C-USA renews agreement with Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl

Conference USA has signed an agreement to continue playing in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl St. Petersburg in Florida through the 2013 college football season.

Conference USA will pit a bowl eligible team against a team from the Big East. The game will be televised on ESPN.

This year’s game will mark the bowl’s third. The Big East has won the first two games.

Last season, Rutgers defeated UCF 45-24 in front of a crowd of 28,000. In the inaugural game in 2008, South Florida defeated Memphis 41-14 at Tropicana Field.

"St. Petersburg and the Beef 'O' Brady’s Bowl have provided a first-class event in a fantastic location to reward our teams and their fans for a great season,” Conference USA Commissioner Britton Banowsky said in a statement. We are thrilled to continue highlighting our teams on ESPN against a quality opponent."

The game also is a backup bowl agreement for the Sun Belt Conference, which will provide a team if one of the tie-ins cannot be filled.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.
