2013-14 Non-BCS Bowl Schedule


With one year of the BCS remaining, so too remains a last large-format non-BCS bowl schedule, with 30 games and 60 slots open for teams who don’t reach the 10 available BCS positions.

As in years past, if conferences are unable to qualify enough teams as bowl-eligible, bowls can select from other bowl-eligible teams or may have contracts for other conferences to fill certain affiliations. Games begin this season Dec. 21 and run through Jan. 5, 2014; from San Diego to the Bronx, NY and many places in between.

You might notice the new conference affiliation listed, “American.”  That’s the new name of the Big East this season. The American Athletic Conference (AAC or “The American”) inherited the Big East’s slots and BCS bowl affiliation. The other conferences are the same as they ever were.
