AAC tied to bowl in 2014

(WMC-TV) - The AAC will have another Bowl tie-in beginning in 2014.

The Miami Marlins' ballpark will host a team from the American Athletic Conference in the Miami Beach Bowl starting next year, with the opponent most likely coming from the Mid-American, Sun Belt or Conference USA conferences.

Marlins Park, located on the site of the old Orange Bowl, seats 36,000 for baseball, but was designed to attract football and soccer events.

Minor bowls with tie-ins to the AAC will also begin next year at Florida Atlantic University's stadium in Boca Raton, Fla., and in Nassau, Bahamas.
