The Quest for (More) Pinstripes

Heather Dinich, over at ESPN, writes an article today where she says the ACC's bowl lineup "is likely to include the New Era Pinstripe Bowl and a return to the Gator Bowl" (The Big East's deal with the Pinstripe Bowl lasts through 2013. I'm not sure if the contract carries over to the AAC.) She says the ACC is likely to stick with the Champs Sports Bowl, Music City Bowl and Belk Bowl - noting the Belk Bowl is leaning toward an ACC - SEC Match up.

The ACC currently has 8 (or 9 with a conditional deal with the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl) bowl tie ins, and with the league expanding to 15 teams, 9 or 10 solid bowl deals are probably needed.

The conference also needs to find a replacement for the Chick-fil-A Bowl, which will join the Cotton, Fiesta, Orange, Rose and Sugar Bowls as the hosts for the new playoff structure that will begin following the 2014 college football season.
