The Pinstripe Bowl is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) college football bowl game that is held at Yankee Stadium in The Bronx, New York City. Since its inaugural game in 2010, the bowl has been sponsored by New Era Cap Company and officially known as the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. The game is organized by the New York Yankees, primary tenants of the venue, and is currently affiliated with the Atlantic Coast Conference (until 2019) and Big Ten Conference (until 2021). The game previously had ties with the Big 12 Conference and the Big East Conference.

The winner of the game is awarded the George M. Steinbrenner Trophy, while the David C. Koch MVP Trophy is awarded to the bowl's most valuable player.[2] The Pinstripe Bowl is one of two FBS bowls held in the Northeast, the other being the Military Bowl in Annapolis, Maryland. It is also one of three bowls that are played outdoors in what are considered cold-weather cities, joining the Military Bowl and the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl held in Boise, Idaho.

History[edit]

The "Yankee" bowl was announced by the New York Yankees' then–minority owner Hal Steinbrenner, then–New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg, then-Big East commissioner John Marinatto, and then–Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe at a Yankee Stadium press conference on September 30, 2009. The last bowl in New York City proper was the Gotham Bowl pitted Miami against Nebraska at the original Yankee Stadium in 1962. The bowl paired the fourth-place team from the Big East Conference against the seventh-place team from the Big 12 Conference.[3][4] In the event the Big 12 lacked an eligible team, Notre Dame received its invitation, as happened in 2013.[5]

On March 9, 2010, the Yankee bowl official name was announced to be the Pinstripe Bowl with New Era Cap Company agreed to sponsor the bowl for four years while ESPN agreed to broadcast the bowl for six years. The inaugural game was played on December 30, 2010.[6][7]

Initially a matchup between the Big 12 and the Big East (which became The American), the matchup now pits an Atlantic Coast Conference team against a Big Ten team starting in 2014, the same year Rutgers University, a New Jersey university that is the closest FBS school in the NYC area, moved to the Big Ten from The American, and one year after Syracuse University moved from the Big East to the ACC.

The ACC agreed to a six-year deal with the Pinstripe Bowl, and the Big Ten agreed to the alignment for eight years. The ACC has adopted a tiered system so the same conference position will not necessarily go to the same bowl.[8] ESPN.com quoted sources that third through sixth bowl-eligible teams would be tiered with the Pinstripe, Belk, Sun, TaxSlayer and Music City bowls.[9]
