Fear not, Terps fans. Maryland won't be heading back to the Humanitarian Bowl anytime soon.
Not that it was such a bad bowl game. It's just that Boise, Idaho, proved a long way for most Maryland fans to even consider traveling. Plus, Boise competes with warm-weather bowl sites. It competes with Splash Mountain.
Anyway, the ACC announced its new bowl tie-ins and -- as expected -- the Humanitarian Bowl is no longer on the list.
The only new addition to this year's ACC bowl slate is the GMAC Bowl, played in Mobile, Ala. on January 6. If the ACC has a ninth bowl-eligible team available, the GMAC Bowl can choose it.
Still on the list, by the way, is the EagleBank Bowl, the District of Columbia-based game that debuted last season. It will have the eighth pick in the selection process and be played later this year than last -- December 29.
