College football season is awesome, but the bowl season that starts in late December every year is quite possibly the best time of the whole year. Two teams battling it out for a sponsored trophy. The Bowl Mania contests on ESPN. The illegal gambling pools that EVERYONE gets into at their respective workplace. It is just a fun time to be a college football fan.
On Tuesday, two of the annual bowls had their dates officially announced.
According to College Football Talk, the Military Bowl and Belk Bowl will be played on December 28th and 30th respectively.
The Military Bowl will be played in Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland at 2:30 p.m., while the Belk Bowl is being played at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina with a start time of 3:30.
The 2014 Military Bowl saw Virginia Tech pull a shocking 33-17 upset over Cincinnati while Georgia beat Louisville 37-14 in the 2014 Belk Bowl.
Expect to see the came conferences in these bowls next season as the Military Bowl has tie-ins with the ACC and American Athletic Conference through 2019 while the Belk Bowl has tie-ins with the ACC and SEC through the same season.
