2013-14 Non-BCS Bowl Schedule

With one year of the BCS remaining, so too remains a last large-format non-BCS bowl schedule, with 30 games and 60 slots open for teams who don’t reach the 10 available BCS positions.

As in years past, if conferences are unable to qualify enough teams as bowl-eligible, bowls can select from other bowl-eligible teams or may have contracts for other conferences to fill certain affiliations. Games begin this season Dec. 21 and run through Jan. 5, 2014; from San Diego to the Bronx, NY and many places in between.

You might notice the new conference affiliation listed, “American.”  That’s the new name of the Big East this season. The American Athletic Conference (AAC or “The American”) inherited the Big East’s slots and BCS bowl affiliation. The other conferences are the same as they ever were.

2011-2012 Non-BCS Bowl Schedule

The 2011-12 non-BCS bowl schedule has been announced, check it out HERE.

Bowl season may be months away, but its never too early to begin thinking about just where your favorite team might end up when bowl season comes around in December.

Once again, 30 bowls have been confirmed for the non-BCS bowl schedule for any of the teams in the FBS who finish with a winning record.

No “new” bowls have been added, but two bowls — the Belk Bowl and the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas — have changed sponsorship, and therefore, their respective names.

With games spread over more than three weeks and across the country, teams will have the opportunity to prove their strength against teams from other conferences during their winter breaks.

Bowls are listed with their conference ties, the conferences with which they have contracted to invite member schools to play in the bowls.

If a conference is unable to supply enough bowl-eligible teams (.500 record or better), the bowl can choose a non-contracted, bowl-eligible school from another conference.
