The city planners really put a lot of thought into those big events. I think the AAC would like to link up with the HOD and Armed Forces Bowl in Dallas if the headquarters moves there as planned. I can easily see the Frisco Bowl becoming a CUSA bowl if that occurs.

I will take that swap.

Looks like ESPN/Frisco/FC Dallas will officially announce a new bowl game at Toyota Stadium tomorrow.

Is this an AAC vs Sun Belt Match up? Or CUSA?

Its not really a "new" game. It's just the Miami Beach Bowl that ESPN purchased and moved.

Yup something for everyone! If you love Miami Beaches and the Frisco Bay then let's meet right in the middle for the game!

2017: AAC vs Sun Belt
2018: AAC vs MAC
2019: AAC vs Sun Belt

Of course, Aresco tried to polish this turd-failure in sunny Miami:

"We are proud of the postseason opportunities that we have been able to provide to our student-athletes through our founding of the Miami Beach Bowl and we appreciate the relationships that we have built with the Miami Marlins, Marlins Park and the cities of Miami and Miami Beach," AAC commissioner Mike Aresco said in a statement.

"This transfer makes sense on so many levels. We are excited to enhance our overall relationship with ESPN and to continue our affiliation with the bowl."

That would make four bowls in the DFW Metroplex, plus the FCS championship game:
Cotton - Arlington
Armed Forces - Fort Worth
Heart of Dallas - Dallas
Bowl Formerly Known as Miami Beach - Frisco

DFW isn't a bad location-I spent 14 years there. Centrally located (especially for these schools), easily accessible airport, great recruiting. The weather in December can be iffy, as it might be 60 degrees on game day, or there may be an ice storm. You don't go there for the weather.

Frisco turned from a small town to a suburb overnight, as it tends to happen in North Texas. It grew from a population of 6,000 in 1990 to 33,000 in 2000 to 160,000 today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frisco,_Texas There are plenty of hotels and restaurants. The Rangers' AA farm club plays in a great ballpark next to the Dallas Stars practice facility. In addition, the Cowboys just opened their new practice facility there, The Star, complete with indoor stadium used by high schools. Frisco is not on the list of Top 10 vacation destinations, but it's fine for a lower-level bowl.

The FCS championship has done well there, especially when NDSU is in it with its horde of traveling fans. Toyota Stadium is fine for what this is. If ESPN wants to put on this game, and it's not going to be in Miami, why not Frisco? There are worse places.

Actually the average high for Dallas in December is about 60. (Actually 58). So it's just as likely to be 80 as it is to have an ice storm. There are only one or 2 freezing precipitation events per year so the chances of it happening on bowl day are very small...maybe a 1-2 percent chance or less. I have lived in North Texas before and have spent 20 years studying Texas weather patterns and most bowl games you'll be looking at a range of 48 or 50 on the low side to the 70s on a mild day. Being in the 30s in the middle of the day would be rare. Not unheard of but rare.

I think the point was, the weather in Dallas around New Year's is unpredictable. Volatile. It can be anywhere from 80 to 40, sunny or ice storm. So you don't go their for the weather.

As for the city, Greater Dallas is obviously a major metropolis and despite its sprawling nature there's no chance of getting bored there on a 5-day bowl trip. Plenty to do in all aspects of life with a big dollop of Texas culture.

The thing is, at that time of year, it's inferior to Miami, which has warm weather you can set your watch by, and the kind of tropical/beach entertainment people generally look for in winter. So in terms of location, it's inferior, no matter how many schools are close enough to drive there.

Besides, IMO, a bowl is supposed to be a "destination", someplace far away and exotic you have to fly to, that's part of what makes it fun for the students and alumni. It's not really a "reward" if it's around the corner. E.g., for most of the Big East/AAC, the St. Pete Bowl, despite the lousy stadium, was/is a fantastic destination because you get to go to sunny Florida when it's freezing up north. But for USF or UCF, it's like not going to a bowl at all.

So I hope that, counterintuitively, it's the USF's and UConn's that get sent to it, not the SMU's and Houston's.
