Conference Bowl Game Tie-ins 2014-2015

2014-15 Group of 5 Bowl Tie-Ins       Click here for Power 5 tie-ins

THE FUTURE OF THE BOWL GAME POSTERLast week we covered the changes to the Power 5 Conferences bowl game tie-ins, and this week we are reporting on the new bowl line ups for the other five conferences and independent schools.   There are several bowl agreements that will be on a rotation, so we listed the conferences that will be appearing in the 2014-2015 bowl season.   Also, remember that the highest ranked team out of the Sunbelt Conference, American Athletic Conference, Mountain West, Mid-American Conference (MAC) or Conference USA will receive a bid to play in one of the games that is in the College Football Playoff rotation.

 

American Athletic Conference  

  • Birmingham Bowl  (SEC)
  • Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl St. Petersburg  (ACC)
  • Miami Beach Bowl  (BYU)
  • Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman  (ACC)
  • Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl  (Army or Big 12)
  • Bahamas Bowl  (MAC)

First thought:  Several great vacation destinations!

 

Conference USA 

  • Gildan New Mexico Bowl  (Mountain West)
  • Boca Raton Bowl  (MAC)
  • Bahamas Bowl  (MAC)
  • Sheraton Hawaii Bowl   (Mountain West)
  • Heart of Dallas Bowl  (BiG 10)
  • Duck Commander Independence Bowl **  (A C-USA team will fill if the ACC or SEC does not fill its slot)

First thought:  The Conference USA Champion selects which game it wishes to appear in, so I’m thinking the Hawaii or Bahamas Bowl!  

 

Mid-American Conference

  • Bahamas Bowl  (American Athletic)
  • Boca Raton Bowl  (Conference USA)
  • Raycom Media Camellia Bowl  (Sun Belt)
  • GoDaddy Bowl  (Sun Belt)
  • Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Mountain West)

First thought:  Some great vacations and a few trips into their opponents home territory.

 

Mountain West Conference

  • Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl (Pac-12)
  • San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl  (Navy)
  • Hawaii Bowl  (Conference USA)
  • Gildan New Mexico Bowl  (Conference USA)
  • R&L Carrier New Orleans Bowl  (Sun Belt)
  • Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (MAC)

First thought:  Great destinations and some home field advantages.

Sun Belt Conference

  • GoDaddy Bowl  (MAC)
  • R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl  (Mountain West)
  • Raycom Media Camellia Bowl (MAC)

First thought:  All games being played in the Sun Belt!

Independents

  • Army – Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl
  • Naval Academy – San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl
  •  Brigham Young – Miami Beach Bowl vs. American Athletic
  • Notre Dame – The College Football Playoff, or as a member of the ACC for bowl selections

68 days until the first college football Saturday!
