The Miami Beach Bowl is a future National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sanctioned Division I college football bowl game to start play in December, 2014 in Miami, Florida at Marlins Park.[1]

Brigham Young University will play in this year's inaugural Miami Beach Bowl against an American Athletic Conference opponent. The Miami Beach Bowl will mark the Cougars' first appearance in a Florida bowl in nearly 30 years, since the 1985 Citrus Bowl in Orlando. Since BYU is an independent and not in a conference, the Cougars must make deals to guarantee a bowl berth each season. BYU's bowl agreement is contingent on the Cougars winning at least six games, though they would be exempted from playing in the Miami Beach Bowl if they qualified for one of the slots in the College Football Playoff.[2]
