SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Brigham Young has agreed to play a team from the American Athletic Conference in the inaugural Miami Beach Bowl in December.
Bowl officials and BYU Athletic Director Tom Holmoe announced Tuesday the Cougars will play at Marlins Park the week before Christmas, assuming they are eligible and not playing a football playoff or other bowl game on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day.
An exact date is pending for the bowl created and owned by the AAC.
BYU plays three other AAC teams in 2014 - hosting Houston on Sept. 11, while playing at UConn Aug. 29 and UCF Oct. 9.
The last time the Cougars played a bowl game in Florida they lost to Ohio State in the 1985 Citrus Bowl in Orlando, 10-7.
