The Southeastern Conference has announced it will continue its partnership with the AdvoCare V100 Bowl through the 2019 season.
Last week, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced its six-year agreement with the nation’s 11th-oldest bowl game.
“We are very excited to extend our partnerships with the SEC and the ACC,” 2013 AdvoCare V100 Bowl Chairman John Hubbard said. “We are excited about the matchup possibilities and look forward to bringing those matchups to the nation.”
Under the new SEC bowl system, the Capital One Bowl will have the first selection of available SEC teams after any conference schools have qualified for the College Football Playoff, the Allstate Sugar Bowl or the Discover Orange Bowl.
Following the Capital One Bowl, there will be a pool of six bowls comprised of renewals with the Outback Bowl, Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl, AutoZone Liberty Bowl, and TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl, as well as new agreements with the Texas Bowl and Belk Bowl.
The SEC has also renewed its relationship with both the Birmingham Bowl and the AdvoCare V100 Bowl. The Birmingham Bowl will have the first selection of available teams following the pool of six bowls. The AdvoCare V100 Bowl will have the next selection of available teams following the Birmingham Bowl.
“The SEC is pleased to continue its agreement with the AdvoCare V100 Bowl,” SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said. “Shreveport/Bossier City has for many years shown great support for the schools and their fans that participate in this bowl, and we look forward to the continuation of this long-time relationship.”
Throughout the bowl’s 38-year history, it has hosted 10 current members of the SEC a combined 23 times.
The AdvoCare V100 Bowl will also have a six-year agreement with the ACC, which announced it is renewing its partnership with the Military Bowl presented by Northrup Grumman and partnering with the new bowl game in Detroit, hosted by the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.
“The AdvoCare V100 Bowl has tremendous history and tradition as the nation’s 11th oldest bowl game,” ACC Commissioner John Swofford said. “We’re pleased to extend our partnership and appreciate the hospitality our teams and fans receive.”
The newly announced trio of bowls will be provided a team from the ACC mix following the selection of the ACC’s previously announced tie-ins with the Discover Orange Bowl – where the ACC’s champion, if not in the College Football Playoff, will play – Russell Athletic Bowl and Capital One Bowl, Hyundai Sun Bowl, Belk Bowl, Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl or TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl, and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.
The ACC will have 15 member institutions in its bowl lineup beginning in 2014, including Notre Dame. Throughout the bowl’s history, it has hosted nine teams that will be members of the ACC bowl lineup in 2014.
The AdvoCare V100 Bowl is currently in its fourth year of a four-year agreement with the ACC and second year of a two-year agreement with the SEC.
