Detroit Lions To Start College Football Bowl Game To Replace Little Caesars Bowl; Pit ACC Vs. Big Ten

The ACC vs. Big Ten in a bowl game at Ford Field. It'll just be like old times. - Gregory Shamus

RIP Pizza Bowl.

According to ESPN's Brett McMurphy, the Little Caesars Bowl will be no more after this season; replaced by a new Detroit bowl game sponsored by the Detroit Lions. The matchup? ACC vs. Big Ten.

The bowl formerly known as the Motor City Bowl has been played annually since 1997. Boston College became the first Big East program to participate in this bowl game in 2002, pasting Toledo 51-25 in what was the first bowl game at the new Ford Field. The previous five installments of this game were played at the Lions' old home, the Pontiac Silverdome. The Eagles, led by Brian St. Pierre, scored on each of their first six possessions en route to a Motor City Bowl record 51 points.

Of all the NFL cities within the combined geographic footprint of the Big Ten and the ACC, why was Detroit selected to continue hosting a bowl game; let alone one pairing the ACC up against the Big Ten. Sorry but were Indianapolis, Minneapolis and St. Louis all booked solid?

With any luck, BC will never play in this bowl game again. Never ever.
