Big Ten, ACC in discussions with Pinstripe Bowl

The Big Ten and ACC are in discussions with the Pinstripe Bowl on a commitment after the 2013 season, according to a league source that expects a deal to happen eventually.

The two-year-old Pinstripe, sponsored by New Era and paying out around $2 million per year, currently pits the Big East's No. 4 team vs. the Big 12's No. 7 team in Yankee Stadium. Syracuse bounced West Virginia 38-14 in last season's snow-fest.

Bowl agreements expire after 2013, prompting conferences and bowls to get creative with an already-stale national bowl lineup.

With the Big 12 likely focusing on other states such as Florida, the Big Ten can explore its new-found East Coast presence with incoming members Maryland and Rutgers. The ACC has a natural tie-in with Syracuse and also Notre Dame, which has a big East Coast alumni base. Notre Dame has committed five football games per year to the ACC starting in 2014 and joins the league's bowl lineup should the Irish miss out on a BCS bowl.
