|ESPN: ACC, Orange Bowl reach deal|
|Wednesday, November 14, 2012 8:59 PM-||
The Atlantic Coast Conference and the Orange Bowl have finalized a 12-year deal placing the ACC champion annually in the bowl against either a team from the SEC or Big Ten or Notre Dame starting Jan. 1, 2015, sources told ESPN.
ESPN will pay an average of $55 million annually for the bowl, sources said.
That amount will be split evenly between the ACC and the SEC or Big Ten, depending on which conference has a team is in the bowl. However, when Notre Dame plays in the bowl, the Fighting Irish will receive a "significant amount less" than the $27.5 million payout the SEC or Big Ten will receive, sources said.
