MAC announces creation of the Bahamas Bowl
The inaugural Bahamas Bowl will take place following the 2014 season and will be played in, you guessed it, the Bahamas.
That noise you hear is the sound of thousands of sportswriters trying to come up with a way to explain to their bosses why they need to cover the Bahamas Bowl in person.
Yes, though it's been known about for a while, the MAC officially announced the creation of the Bahamas Bowl on Monday.
“The Mid-American Conference is proud to partner in the creation of the Bahamas Bowl beginning with the 2014 season and to feature the only bowl game outside of the United States,” said MAC commissioner John Steinbrecher. “This will truly be a one-of-its-kind bowl experience for our student-athletes, coaches and fans. The Thomas A. Robinson Stadium will be a wonderful host venue and the accommodations with the Atlantis Resort will certainly be a destination to reward our football programs.”
As CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler reported in early October, the Bahamas Bowl will feature teams from five different conferences over its first six years. Those conferences will be the MAC, Mountain West, American Athletic, Conference USA and the Sun Belt.
There is no date set for the first Bahamas Bowl game.
