Pinstripe Bowl announces six-year partnership with ACC

With a mini-wave of future bowl tie-ins announced over the past several days, the Pinstripe Bowl has become the latest to reveal a long-term partnership.

As expected, the Pinstripe Bowl and New York Yankees announced Tuesday evening that it has reached a multi-year agreement with the ACC.  The partnership for the postseason games to be played at Yankee Stadium will run from 2014 through 2019.

The ACC will face members of the Big Ten, which announced earlier this month a new six-year tie-in with the Pinstripe Bowl.

“The partnership between the ACC and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl makes sense on so many levels and we are extremely pleased that one of the league’s football teams will be showcased in this game annually,” said ACC commissioner John Swofford in a statement. “With our 15-member conference stretching along the entire Atlantic Coast, this will be a great opportunity for our fans and alums to connect in the media capital of world and with one of the most storied and successful franchises in sports.”

Over the three years of its existence, the Pinstripe Bowl has featured a Big East-Big 12 matchup.

The first ACC-Big Ten matchup will take place following the 2014 season.

“The addition of the ACC to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, along with the Big Ten, will provide an annual matchup of some of college football’s top-tier programs,” said New York Yankees Managing Partner Hal Steinbrenner. “With outstanding institutions all along the East Coast as well as the Northeast, the ACC is an attractive participant and partner for the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.   We look forward to hosting the ACC, its fans and alumni in New York City for years to come during the holiday season.”

    What if BC, Pitt, and Syracuse aren’t bowl-eligible?

    At least the big 12 doesn’t have to send a 6 win team there to play in the snow anymore. Cancel it or put it in the preliminary rotation for the playoffs.

    I’d put money on Penn State coming off probation, Rutgers or Northwestern being the preferred teams for this bowl game.

    I’d still rather go to NYC for the holidays rather than Jacksonville, Dallas or Tampa.

    Nothing says college football like a snow covered baseball field in the Bronx.

    The holidays in New York are great for people who have family in New York.

    Good luck on your flight, hotel, and entertainment value in New York in late December. (Family of four pinching pennies will be spending well over $10K for a 3 day trip.)

    May as well have the game on the moon for teams that are .500 at best in their conference.

    Add on the pleasure of getting in and out of New York, traffic, and crowds, and Clark Griswold would pass on this winter escapade.

    As usual, the Big 10 will have more bowl tie-ins than they’ll likely have bowl eligible teams.

    Yes I’m going to take vacation advice from a person following a farm team. I’m sure the BIG CITY is a scary place for someone that worships a fly over state.

    Leave the travel plans to those of us that don’t base locations on bad stereotypes. When I mentioned Jacksonville & Tampa I didn’t once bring up Meth use or registered sex offenders which according to most non-Florida based media coverage is the only thing people associate with the state. Expand your horizon. Oh and Christmas in NYC is a wonderful time of year.
