Orlando's Cure Bowl will feature a Sun Belt team

ORLANDO (OrlandoSentinel.com) - Orlando will host a third college football bowl game at the Citrus Bowl, sources told the Orlando Sentinel.

The Orlando Sports Foundation, which originally pitched the Cure Bowl as a game that could be played at UCF's Bright House Networks Stadium and would benefit breast cancer-related charities, will manage the new bowl. It will not be affiliated with the Florida Citrus Sports, which oversees Orlando's Capital One Bowl and Russell Athletic Bowl.

The game is expected to match teams from the American Athletic Conference, UCF's current league, and the Sun Belt. It will be played before the Russell Athletic Bowl in December and would not conflict with any potential College Football Playoff or national championship games Orlando hopes to host in the future.
