With conferences looking to reshuffle their bowl lineups for the 2014 season, reports that the Big Ten and ACC would meet in the Pinstripe Bowl have been popping up over the last couple of months.

According to our buddy Ralph Russo at the Associated Press, an agreement between the Pinstripe Bowl and Big Ten is set to be announced on Monday. Brett McMurphy of ESPN.com adds that the agreement is for six years.

The Big Ten would replace the Big 12, which is looking to have a larger bowl presence in Florida. The ACC is also expected to become the Big Ten’s opponent for the Pinstripe Bowl, replacing the Big East.

The Big Ten is also reportedly close to landing a spot in the Holiday Bowl, another postseason game that currently has a tie-in with the Big 12.

    A bowl game played on snow covered baseball field in December: why did the Big12 let this one get away?

    A bowl game played in *the most important city on Earth (http://www.realclearworld.com/lists/most_important_cities_in_the_world/new_york.html?state=stop)

    Speaking more tangibly – a first class destination for a team’s fan base every few years

    The over-hyped Big Ten getting together with the over-hyped Yankees?

    How about some profound words from Gordon Gee on the topic.

    This makes perfect sense for the Big Ten with Rutgers from New York about the join.

    There are plenty of us out here in “fly-over” country who, at best, truly don’t care about New York.
