From 1964 through 1967, the Tangerine Bowl was one of four postseason games in the NCAA College Division, the Atlantic regional final.[2] The 1964 game had the Redmen of the Yankee Conference and the independent Pirates.

The other three regional finals in the College Division were the Pecan, Grantland Rice, and Camellia bowls, also played on December 12.[4]


This was not a large school bowl before the playoffs started in Division II and college division there were many bowls like this for lower division

UMASS has never been to a FBS level bowl. They did win many playoff games in FCS

Facts are optional for David.......

RE: UMass. Now Take Over The Longest Drought In Bowl Games
UMASS should try and get a scheduling arrangement with the AAC for 4 to 6 games a year and a shot at one of their low end bowls especially if the AAC can't fill the slots for their contracted bowls. They can then fill in other slots with Liberty, Army, NM ST, and BYU while waiting for a conference opening. Add a couple of money games, some old MAC partners, and some local P5 schools that will play them in Gillette for their half of home and home scheduling and UMASS could go on indefinitely as an independent if it can't get into a conference for football in the near future. 07-coffee3

Nothing that I can see. Throw in a BBall scheduling agreement (a la the MAC agreements with Temple & UMass) ... and it's still no clear gain, since the AAC teams can get those games if they want.

Why would you count their I-AA/FCS years as part of this "drought" when they wouldn't be eligible for those games?

Using that logic, Washington & Jefferson hasn't been to a bowl since the 1922 Rose Bowl. That's nearly 100 years!

To be far, UMass. never dropped down a level in all sports. D1 is still D1 for all sports. 1964, there was no FBS/FCS. Some of the lower end bowls like The Tangerine/Citrus were for schools at the University level (Umass.) Vs College level (East Carolina). The history of many of these bowl games including the defunct ones are associated with the Big Boys.

But your saying that UMass has the longest bowl drought because it hasn't been to one since 1964 implies that they were eligible to be picked for bowls when obviously they weren't when they were in I-AA/FCS.

UMASS was college level in 1964.

What do we gain from that?

A look at a potential future conference mate when realignment kicks in a gain and one or more AAC teams are picked off again. 07-coffee3
