The Boca Raton Bowl set for Dec. 23

By Tom Fornelli | College Football Writer

There's nothing quite like bowl scheduling news in May, is there? On Thursday we found out the Bahamas Bowl would be played on Christmas Eve, and now, only a day later, we find out the Boca Raton Bowl will be played a day before the Bahamas Bowl.

Crazy, right?

“There is a high level of excitement for the new Boca Raton Bowl,” said the bowl's executive director, Doug Mosley. “We have a beautiful venue in FAU Stadium and a very engaged community in Palm Beach County.”

Listen, I'm one of those college football fans that actually likes having more bowl games because it means I have more football to watch, but "high level of excitement" about the Boca Raton Bowl is pushing it, Doug. I'm happy to know there's a game for me to watch on a December Tuesday, but let's not go off the rails.

In 2014 the Boca Raton Bowl will pit a team from Conference USA against a team from the MAC, though the American Athletic Conference is also affiliated with the game.
