ACC Signs New Deal With Pinstripe Bowl
BRONX, NY (ACC) -- The New York Yankees and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl Tuesday announced a multi-year partnership with the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The six-year affiliation between the two renowned brands includes the ACC’s commitment to play in the annual New Era Pinstripe Bowl from 2014 to 2019. Additionally, for all New York Yankees regular season games beginning in 2014, the ACC will have a significant branding presence in Yankee Stadium, featuring a fixed sign along the third-base line and home plate rotating signage.
Beginning in 2014, the ACC will face off against the Big Ten Conference – who entered into a multi-year partnership with the New York Yankees and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl on June 3 – in the annual New Era Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.
Established in 2010, the New Era Pinstripe Bowl has featured some of the most memorable moments of bowl seasons in just three short years, including the exciting finish in the inaugural 2010 game in which Kansas State missed a game-tying two-point conversion in the final minute, and the record-setting 208-yard rushing performance by Syracuse’s Prince-Tyson Gulley in last year’s game.
The 2012 New Era Pinstripe Bowl featured six 2013 NFL draft picks, including each of the game’s starting quarterbacks – Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib (Giants) and West Virginia’s Geno Smith (Jets).
