Get out your credit cards!

The Orange Bowl has its new sponsor -- Discover Financial Services. 

Orange Bowl logoDiscover will be the title sponsor for the 2011-2014 Orange Bowl Games and the 2013 BCS National Championship Game. The Orange Bowl Game will be known as the "Discover Orange Bowl" and the 2013 BCS National Championship Game will be named the "2013 Discover BCS National Championship Game."

Under the partnership, Discover will be the official card of the Orange Bowl and the Bowl Championship Series.

"Discover’s commitment to the Orange Bowl reinforces the game’s national strength and appeal as one of the premier sporting events in the country," said Eric Poms, CEO of the Orange Bowl Committee. "We welcome Discover to South Florida and the home of championship college football and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership. Our shared passion will leave a lasting impact on our community, while further enriching the 77-year history of the Orange Bowl."

FedEx was the sponsor for the game from 1989-2010, but ended its deal earlier this year.
