Orlando will play host to a third college football bowl game at the Citrus Bowl, according to Matt Murschel of the Orlando Sentinel. The bowl game reportedly will pit AAC and Sun Belt teams against one another in its 2015 debut.

The Orlando Sports Foundation, which will manage the game, reportedly pitched the Cure Bowl to benefit breast cancer-related charities.

Citrus Bowl stadium already is home to the Capital One Bowl and Russell Athletic Bowl, which are affiliated with Florida Citrus Sports.

Sun Belt commissioner Karl Benson confirmed that his league is looking into a possible game in Orlando.

“It hasn’t been a secret that the Sun Belt has indicated a desire to be involved with a fourth guaranteed game,” Benson told the Sentinel Monday. “I don’t think it’s been a secret that there’s been an organization in Orlando that has attempted to launch a game.”

American Athletic Conference commissioner Mike Aresco said during a teleconference the league would announce a new bowl partnership Wednesday.
