Belk Bowl to get SEC for six years

Charlotte's Belk Bowl is entering a six-year agreement with the SEC which will begin with the 2014 season.

The bowl at Bank of America Stadium will now feature a regular matchup of SEC vs. ACC teams.

For the past decade, the Belk Bowl has featured the ACC playing a team from the Big East, which has become the American Athletic Conference.

The Belk Bowl will be part of a six-bowl rotation (including the Outback, Gator, Music City, Texas and Liberty bowls) to determine where SEC teams will play in the postseason -- after potential berths in the new college football playoff and the Capital One Bowl are locked up.

"This is a big step for us with ratings and ticket demand," said Will Webb, the Belk Bowl's executive director. "This is where we want the Belk Bowl to be."  -- David Scott

The ACC has won 3 out of the last four Chick-fil-A Bowls, against SEC opponents.

The SEC poster above must also think that global warming is a hoax and that Santa delivers his presents on 25Dec. The ACC will win more than it loses against the SEC. It starts with the 30+ point blowout the Heels will put on the Visor's boys.

That's because the Chick-fil-A bowls typically pits the #2 ACC team against the #5-7 SEC team.

So what? The Belk Bowl will get fifth ACC team versus #8 from the SEC. It doesn't mean that the ACC is better overall conference than the top heavy SEC because it wins bowl games head to head, but there's no reason to theink the ACC is going to lose six straight Belk Bowls to the SEC.

ACC number 2 school vs SEC #9.

It currently features a match-up between teams which have ranked at or approximate to #5 in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and #3 in the Big East. It's going to rotate, but will likely combine current ACC #5 with Liberty SEC #8.

Everybody LOVES to think that the 8th best team in the SEC would lay a whooping on the TOP team in the ACC. Well, the numbers in bowls just have not proven that at all. It will end up being the #5 ACC team against the 8th or 9th SEC team. Get ready to back up all your mouth SEC.

Love my Heels! There is NO WAY Carolina wins by 30. I hope we can keep it close and have a chance at the end. At Columbia I could see us being down by 21 at end of 1st qtr if not careful. UNC has a talented team. Gamecocks should win handily.

Darth Visor will put a 41-0 spot on the Heels just like he did when he was the Head Ball Coach at Dook.
