NEW YORK (AP) - The Atlantic Coast Conference is staking a claim to New York City by adding the Pinstripe Bowl to its postseason lineup.
The conference and the Yankee Stadium bowl game have agreed to a six-year deal that starts in 2014. Commissioner John Swofford was in the Bronx on Tuesday for a news conference with Yankees officials.
Swofford says it's a partnership that ``makes sense in every way.''
The ACC is expanding north, adding Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Notre Dame this season. The Fighting Irish will remain a football independent, but will play five games per season against ACC teams. Louisville will join in 2014.
Swofford says New York is now ``a very, very important part of our footprint.''
The Pinstripe Bowl announced a deal with the Big Ten earlier this month.
