Report: ACC, Pinstripe Bowl Agree To New 6-Year Deal

USA TODAY Sports

Just when you thought Syracuse would no longer would play in the Pinstripe Bowl...

The Syracuse Orange's Pinstripe Bowl invitation maybe coming sooner than expected.

According to ESPN's Brett McMurphy, the Orange's soon-to-be new home, the Atlantic Coast Conference, has agreed to a six-year deal with the Pinstripe Bowl. The ACC replaces the old Big East Conference (is that what we're calling it now?) as an opponent to a Big Ten foe. Last month, the Big Ten, which now has Rutgers and Maryland, agreed to an eight-year deal with the bowl, which previously hosted programs from the Big East and Big 12.

ACC commissioner John Swofford is expected Tuesday to join New York Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner and team president Randy Levine for press conference to announce the new partnership.

So, where does the Pinstripe Bowl sit on the ACC bowl invitations totem pole? McMurphy explains:

Beginning in 2014, the Pinstripe Bowl will share the ACC's third through sixth selections with the Belk, Sun and Gator/Music City bowls, sources said. The Orange Bowl will get the ACC champion -- or the league's first selection after any ACC teams that have qualified for the College Football Playoff semifinals.

The Russell Athletic Bowl will get the ACC's next selection after the Orange Bowl, sources said. The ACC also will have a deal with the Capital One Bowl that will allow the league to replace the Big Ten in the bowl if the Big Ten sends a team to the Orange, where it would play the ACC, a source said. In the Capital One Bowl, the ACC would play a team from the SEC.

In the ACC's new bowl lineup, the league also is expected to be part of a new Detroit bowl against the Big Ten, ESPN reported in May.

So, what you're saying is we should all get used to a Syracuse-Rutgers biannual showdown at Yankee Stadium? Alrighty then.
