03:44 PM ET 05.02 | The Big Ten and ACC will likely be the two conferences tied into the Pinstripe Bowl after its current deal with the Big 12 and Big East expires. Bowl executives have been keen to feature a local team in the New York-based bowl game, and the Big Ten and ACC make the most sense with Rutgers and Syracuse joining those respective conferences in the next year. The ACC could also regain its tie-in with the Gator Bowl, which they held until 2009.

A bowl game no one cares about from 2 conferences who haven't won a national title between em in a decade. Ohhhh the excitement!

All bowl games do not have to be played in "God's Waiting Room". Not everyone thinks the sun rises and sets on the SEC. It is good to have a bowl game in the nation's largest city.

seems as though some folks from the sec are full of themselves. you get to utilize over-signing and thus create a competitive advantage. we don't. so congratulations on all your mnc's. they should be noted with an asterik. besides, a college bowl game in the big apple around the holidays sounds fine to me.

I have no gripes with this game - except for the stadium configuration for fan viewing.

If you look at the pic, the midfield seats, especially on the far 30-40 yard lines, are a loooooong way from the field. Playing football in a baseball-designed yard is rarely good for football fan viewing, and this is a great example of that.

The sun never sets on the SEC.

And I think that the corner of one end zone is right at the stands so there is little room to go out of bounds there...

Plus who wouldn't want to see a bowl game where the weather was the main topic and not the teams or the game.

Be especially wary of the socks. Sparty works for a living.
