Big Ten extends pacts with Capital One, Outback bowls

Big Ten Logo

Earlier this week, the Big Ten announced that it had entered into an agreement with a new bowl game being created by the NFL’s Detroit Lions.

Friday, the conference announced a couple of new agreements with a pair of old postseason friends.

In a press release, the Big Ten confirmed that it has indeed extended its association with the Capital One Bowl as well as the Outback Bowl.  Both of the new agreements extend through the game following the 2019 regular season.

The Capital One Bowl, the release states, will select an eligible Big Ten team immediately after the conference’s participants in the Rose Bowl and/or College Football Playoff are identified when the new system for determining a national champion takes effect in 2014.

The league and the Capital One Bowl have been postseason partners since 1992, making it the conference’s second-longest bowl agreement behind only the Rose Bowl.  The Outback Bowl has hosted a Big Ten team in its game the past 20 years and 24 times in its 27-year history.

Both of the games are played annually on New Year’s Day.

    Big 10 keeps lining up bowls as if they’ve ever been able to have enough bowl-eligible teams to fill them.

    Does any one know why all of these new bowl agreements all seem to expire in 2019?

    mtheparrothead: I believe you meant to reference the Outback bowl? saying it should be called the “Bloomin’ Onion Bowl”?

    Cool story Bro. Tell it again.

    @vincent… free math education

    B1G x Bowls = $$$

    Most bowls are not rewards for the teams; they’re destinations for the fans.
    Big Ten fans will travel out of the Midwest in winter, provided it’s somewhere warm.
    That’s not New York or Detroit.

    Remind us all again of the bowl game Auburn played in last year.

    Surely somebody talking smack would have won at least 4 games last year.

    drummer… this worlds system ends in 2019.

    The Detroit bowl seems weird, unless it’s just a close bowl for the fans. The NYC bowl is probably a play to make rutgers worth the addition. I do look forward to the SEC vs B1G bowls. Good fun.

    Yes it was understood that was the case chump. Thus the period expressing two different sentences.
