MAC adds Cameilla Bowl to schedule

The Daily News

After participating in the Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl following the 2012 season, the Ball State football team will have another opportunity to “go bowling.“

On Monday, the Mid-American Conference announced the creation of the Cameilla Bowl, which will pit a Bowl Eligible MAC team against a Sun Belt Conference team.

The bowl will begin in the 2014 bowl season.

The Cameilla Bowl will be the fourth bowl game that is available for the MAC teams. 

Last season, seven MAC teams were bowl-ligible, with five teams receiving a bowl game: Ball State (Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl), Northern Illinois (Orange Bowl), Toledo (Famous Idaho Potato Bowl), Kent State ( Bowl) and Central Michigan (Little Caesars Pizza Bowl).

The Cameilla Bowl will be played in the Cramton Bowl in Montgomery, Ala., and will be owned and operated by ESPN, according to a news release. 

Cameilla is the state flower of Alabama.
