Music City Bowl sets the stage for Dec. 30

Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl - Mississippi v Georgia Tech

While the Liberty Bowl felt a need to push up the kickoff date for its game this season to get out from the shadows cast by bigger bowl games invading its space on the bowl calendar, the Music City Bowl is in a much more favorable position. The Music City Bowl announced it will be played on December 30, 2014. Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. eastern in Nashville, Tennessee. The game will be aired by ESPN.

The Liberty Bowl moved up the date of its game from December 31 to December 29, likely due to the Orange Bowl, Fiesta Bowl and Peach Bowl all being played on New Years Eve. The Music City Bowl can remain in its slot on DecemberĀ 30 and serve as a final appetizer for the big bowl games to come.

This season’s Music City Bowl will pair a team from the SEC against a team fromĀ the ACC or Big Ten. Three other bowl games are scheduled for December 30 as well. The Detroit Bowl (Big Ten vs. ACC), Belk Bowl (ACC vs. SEC), and San Francisco Bowl (Big Ten vs. Pac-12) will all be a part of the bowl line-up that day.

    Ok. As long as NONE of the teams are 6-6. Bowl games are supposed to be a reward for the players for having a successful season.

    Why do you care? Six wins was the rule everybody agreed too and when they had a chance to change it to 7, it was turned down for a reason more games is better than less.

    Bowl games are a chance for companies to sell products during commerical breaks, fans to take a vacation somewhere warm and communities to enjoy an influx in tourism dollars in their respective areas during the holidays.

    PLEASE stop acting like there is some noble reason why the games are played, as soon as there were more bowls than the cotton, rose, orange and sugar we went away from the model you mentioned.

    If you don’t like it don’t watch it’s you’re choice.
