New bowl game at Fenway Park to match teams from ACC, AAC
BOSTON (AP) — Add another bowl game to the mix, this one at Fenway Park.
The century-old baseball park will host a matchup between teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference and the American Athletic Conference, starting in 2020. The date for the Fenway Bowl is expected to be announced on Tuesday.
It will be the first college bowl game at the home of the Boston Red Sox. The ballpark has hosted other football dating back to 1912, including the American Football League’s Boston Patriots in the 1960s and The Game last year between Harvard and Yale.
There are 40 postseason games scheduled for this season in the Football Championship Subdivision, including the national championship game. Three more are expected for the 2020 season.
