The ACC is set to have a tie-in to one of three new bowls come the 2020 season, per college football reporter Brett McMurphy.

The bowl would be a second played in a baseball stadium between the ACC and the Big Ten, per McMurphy, joining Yankee Stadium's Pinstripe Bowl.

Per the report, the ACC will be tied with the SEC for a maximum of 10 bowl tie-ins, which are outside of the New Year's Six Bowl bids (ACC is guaranteed at least one there). The conference currently has automatic ties with eight non-NY6 bowls and a rotation with the Big Ten in the Citrus and Gator/Music City Bowls.

Another likely new bowl, per McMurphy, is in Myrtle Beach between a pair of Group of 5 conferences (Sun Belt, C-USA and/or Mid-American) at Coastal Carolina.

Because of recent renovations, the to-be-named Chicago bowl would avoid the issues from a 2010 game between Northwestern and Illinois at Wrigley Field, where they had to play to one end zone because the proximity of the wall.
