For people that say there are too many bowl games. Buckle Up. It looks like there a few more on the way!
According to Brett McMurphy
Chicaco and Myrtle Beach appear to be front runners for Bowl Games 41 and 42 with Charleston,SC, Greenville, NC and Tempe, AZ expected to vie for bowl game 43.
Based on recommendations by the NCAA’s Competition Committee, there are expected to be three new bowl games added for the 2020 season, sources said.
In 2020, a record 43 bowls (including the College Football Playoff title game) would be held, meaning a record 65 percent of the 130 FBS schools (84 teams) will play in a bowl game.
The Competition Committee’s recommendations, expected to be approved Tuesday by the NCAA’s Football Oversight Committee, has also designated the maximum number of bowl tie-ins per conference. These numbers were based on each conference’s average number of bowl-eligible teams in the past four seasons (2014-17).
The number of proposed bowls allowed per conference beginning in 2020, the start of the new bowl cycle, will be as follows (the Power 5 tie-ins do not include one New Year’s 6 bid for each league):
League Maximum bowl tie-ins
ACC 10 (not including ACC’s Orange Bowl bid)
SEC 10 (not including SEC’s Sugar Bowl bid)
Big Ten 8 (not including Big Ten’s Rose Bowl bid)
Pac-12 7 (not including Pac-12’s Rose Bowl bid)
Big 12 6 (not including Big 12’s Sugar Bowl bid)
Conference USA 7
Mountain West 6
Sun Belt 5
3 new bowl games in 2020 if NCAA approves Competition Committee’s recommendations, sources said. That will make 43 bowls (including title game): 84 teams or 65% of all FBS teams will go bowling. Chicago (B1G vs. ACC) & Myrtle Beach will be 2 of new bowls https://t.co/fcxi8GKyeI— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) June 11, 2018
