Beginning this season, Mitsubishi Motors Las Vegas Bowl joins forces with the SEC, Big Ten and Pac-12 in the new, state-of-the-art Allegiant Stadium. The game will feature a team from the Pac-12 Conference vs. a team from either the SEC or Big Ten Conference in a six-year deal.
"The Raiders are proud to partner with the LVCVA and ESPN Events to bring the tradition of the Las Vegas Bowl to Allegiant Stadium, which will provide an exciting destination for fans from the Pac-12, SEC and Big Ten conferences," said Raiders President Marc Badain. "The Raiders are committed to working with the LVCVA to continue to attract elite sporting events to the newest world-class venue in the Entertainment Capital of the World."
The eaxct time and date has not yet been announced.
Allegiant Stadium will also host the PAC-12 Championship game in 2021 and 2022. This season, the home team with the best conference record, or highest ranking for the tie-breaker procedure, will host the championship game.
Cheez-It Bowl moves from Phoenix to Orflando: The Cheez-It Bowl leaves Phoenix for Orlando, but this doesn't create a fourth Orlando bowl. Instead, Cheez-It is simply taking over the naming rights of the Camping World Bowl which has also formerly been called the Russel Athletic Bowl and the Champs Sports Bowl (among other iterations), and was played in Miami from 1990-2000 as the Blockbuster Bowl and Micron PC Bowl, to name a few of its identities in south Florida.
Cactus Bowl: In relation to the move above, Phoenix will keep the bowl game under another name. For now, the game reverts back to the Cactus Bowl.
Independence Bowl: Radiant Technologies takes over naming rights.
Hawaii Bowl: Canceled for 2020
Bahamas Bowl: Canceled for 2020
RedBox Bowl: Defunct
New Bowls: The Los Angeles Bowl (first selection from the Mountain West against a Pac-12 team). The Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park opens in 2020 and will also host the 2023 College Football Playoff title game. The MWC's 19-year tie-in with the Las Vegas Bowl ended after last season.
The Myrtle Beach Bowl, created by ESPN, will feature teams from Conference USA, the Mid-American and Sun Belt. Each conference will play four times between 2020-25.
The Fenway Bowl at Fenway Park in Boston will feature teams from the American Conference and the ACC.
