Change with the Bahamas Bowl
http://collegefootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-bowl-pie/

C-USA has bought the Bahamas Bowl and will play a minimum of 4 out of the next 6 years. Original tie ins had the slots rotating between MAC, AAC, Sun Belt, and C-USA. AAC was originally scheduled to play there this season but gave up their slot to C-USA. C-USA gave up their slot in Miami for this year.

Belt was scheduled to play once (or twice?) over the next 6 years.

This strange bowl just got stranger.

Sounds like CUSA bought AAC slots only after AAC agreed to Cure Bowl. Overseas bowl games are a novel idea but they don't seem like they will last.

So does the Pro Bowl's and half of bowl games.

TV Content
Practice Time

That's why they play them. Sucks we are out of the rotation. I would have gone.

Great bowl for the players and fans that attend. Flights are usually cheap to the Bahamas as well...

Odd. Some think this bowl is the best thing since French Fries, and some do not
think it will last past the first game.

CUSA bought it so yes. As someone has already said, it will be a better located Hawaii Bowl. It will be able to be played in the afternoon of the EST time zone. Will be closer travel for the teams as well. And will be an exotic locale game in a smaller stadium than the Hawaii Bowl.

RE: Change with the Bahamas Bowl
Where does it say Sun Belt gave up slots. Looks like only AAC did. Plus isn't the SBC giving up the NOLA bowl to AAC the year SB was supposed to be Bahama Bowl?

It doesn't say MAC, Belt, or MWC gave up their ties. Only that AAC gave up this year and might give up the rest of the years as well.
