The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced a 12-year agreement with the Orange Bowl beginning in 2014. Details on the opponent and broadcast partner will be released at a later date. The ACC has sent its champion to the South Florida-based bowl every year since 2006, and this announcement means that relationship will continue when the Bowl
Subdivision makes the switch to a four-team playoff in two years. The Orange Bowl will be played annually at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1, and the ACC anticipates the Orange Bowl hosting at least four semifinal games. If the ACC champion makes the playoffs, another ACC team will play in the Orange Bowl. The ACC becomes the fifth major conference to announce a tie with a bowl that expects to be part of the pool of six bowls from which two semifinal sites will rotate. The Big 12 and Southeastern Conference are creating the Champions Bowl for their representatives, while the Big Ten and Pac-12 are committed to the Rose Bowl.
