“This year’s Boca Raton Bowl is going to build upon our earned reputation as Boca’s biggest annual outdoor party,” said Boca Raton Bowl Executive Director Doug Mosley. “There will be a broad variety of entertainment opportunities that will include rides, games, live music, food and drink, samplings and more. We expect a lot of support from the fans in the South Florida community with the goal of having an even better turnout than the inaugural game.”
The inaugural Boca Raton Bowl, announced by ESPN in October 2013, was held on Dec. 23, 2014. It was the only bowl game other than the College Football Playoff Semifinals and Championship to feature a matchup of two conference champions, when Conference USA (C-USA) champion Marshall defeated Mid-American (MAC) champion Northern Illinois 52-23. In an agreement with the American Athletic Conference (AAC), C-USA and MAC, a team from each conference will make four appearances over the initial six years, with the MAC and the AAC squaring off this year.
