The Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Bowl was a college football bowl game played from 1989 to 2003. From 1993 until its cancellation in 2003, the game pitted the champion of the Northeast Conference against the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champion. All games were played on campus sites.

All games involved a team from either New York State or Pennsylvania, and only the 1997 game, hosted by Georgetown University, did not take place in either one of those states.

The Northeast Conference edged the MAAC in all-time results, with NEC members winning six of the ten games.

From 2006-2009, the NEC champion participated in the Gridiron Classic against the Pioneer Football League champion.

In 2010 the NEC was awarded an Auto Qualifying bid to the Division I Football Championship Subdivisiom playoffs.
