New Bowl In Orlando To Have Sunbelt Ties (begins 2015)
Orlando will host a third college football bowl game at the Citrus Bowl, sources told the Orlando Sentinel.

The Orlando Sports Foundation, which originally pitched the Cure Bowl as a game that could be played at UCF’s Bright House Networks Stadium and would benefit breast cancer-related charities, will manage the new bowl. It will not be affiliated with the Florida Citrus Sports, which oversees Orlando’s Capital One Bowl and Russell Athletic Bowl.

The game is expected to match teams from the American Athletic Conference, UCF’s current league, and the Sun Belt. It will be played before the Russell Athletic Bowl in December and would not conflict with any potential College Football Playoff or national championship games Orlando hopes to host in the future.

That's cool. Nice to see an AAC opponent. Something besides the MAC or C-USA.

This is great news for the Sun Belt. With 11 teams next year (2 not bowl eligible) 4 slots seems about right.

Once we get up to 11 teams eligible in 2015 (or possibly 12 in 2016) I think we could handle 5 spots but 4 is a definite move in the right direction.

That is big news indeed. 4 guaranteed is a big boost and we rotate for others. We should not have a huge problem with teams being left out anymore.

If this really pans out, that would be quite interesting.

I think there's going to be room for every bowl eligible team starting next year.

Its pretty much gotten NCAA approval. Press conference Wednesday.

I know ASU has been leaking this bowl to fans for a while as the 4th SBC Bowl tie in.
