2015 Belk Bowl: NC State vs Mississippi State
Stadium: Bank of America Stadium
Location: Charlotte, NC
Date: Dec. 30, 3:30 p.m. on ESPN
ACC record in Belk Bowl: 7-6
With Bank of America Stadium in place, Raycom Sports began exploring possible options for collegiate events to be held in Charlotte. President & CEO of Raycom Sports, Ken Haines, envisioned a major college bowl game in Charlotte, garnering local support for a NCAA bowl bid for the Queen City.
On Sunday, December 8, 2002, Virginia and West Virginia officially accepted invitations to play in the inaugural Belk Bowl game. The matchup featured the No. 2 team from the ACC pitted against the No. 2 team from the Big East. A sellout crowd of 73,535 fans packed Bank of America Stadium, making it the fastest sellout in a first-year bowl game in history.
Concurrent with Belk’s sponsorship extension, the bowl game will feature the 2nd pooled selection from the ACC paired against the 2nd pooled selection in the SEC after the College Football Playoff.
