Miami's Conference Announces Tie-In with Miami Beach Bowl
CLEVELAND (WKRC) -- The Mid-American Conference announced today a tie-in with the newly created Miami Beach Bowl to be played in Marlins Park in Miami, Fla. The MAC will play in the Miami Beach Bowl in the 2016 and 2018 bowl seasons as part of a rotation of FBS conferences.
The creation of the Miami Beach Bowl is the third of a series of bowl announcements and the centerpiece of a joint agreement between several FBS conferences. The Miami Beach Bowl, along with the previously announced Boca Raton Bowl and Bahamas Bowl, will be supported by several FBS conferences on a six-year rotating basis (2014-2019).
The MAC will play the American Athletic Conference in the Miami Beach Bowl in both the 2016 and 2018 bowl seasons. The MAC will have the final primary bowl partnership announcement for this rotation in the next several days.
The Mid-American Conference is proud to have a tie-in with the Miami Beach Bowl as part of this collaborative effort among FBS conferences, said Dr. Jon Steinbrecher, Mid-American Conference Commissioner. We are excited for our student-athletes, fans and alumni to have the opportunity to come to South Florida as a bowl destination during the holidays for the 2016 and 2018 bowl seasons.
With the Miami Beach, Boca Raton and Bahamas Bowl rotation, the MAC will have created two new primary appearances on an annual basis for the next six years. Starting in the 2014 college football season, the MAC will have a minimum five guaranteed bowl opportunities.
