ACC Announces 12-Year Deal With Orange Bowl

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- The Atlantic Coast Conference is remaining tied to the Orange Bowl.

The league on Tuesday announced a 12-year agreement with the bowl beginning after the 2014 season and said details on the opponent and broadcast partner would come later.

The ACC has sent its champion to the South Florida-based bowl every year since 2006. This announcement means that relationship will continue when the Bowl Subdivision makes the switch to a four-team playoff in two years.

The league anticipates the Orange Bowl hosting at least four semifinal games and says in those years, its champion will play in one of the host bowls.

If the ACC champion makes the playoffs, another ACC team will go to the Orange Bowl.

The game will be played annually at 1 p.m. on Jan. 1.
