Citrus Bowl Returns To New Year’s Day In 2017-18

The Citrus Bowl will return to its traditional New Year’s Day slot and be played at 1:00 p.m. ET on January 1, 2018.

The game will be televised live on ABC and played at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.

In the new “College Football Playoff” era of college football’s postseason, the Citrus Bowl will continue to host the top Big Ten and SEC teams from outside the CFP series of bowls (including Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Orange, Cotton and Peach). In years where a Big Ten team is assigned to play in a non-semifinal Orange Bowl, “Orlando’s New Year’s Classic” will host the top non-CFP selection from the Atlantic Coast Conference against the top non-CFP selection from the SEC.

Last year’s edition saw the LSU and its stout defense keep Heisman winner Lamar Jackson and Louisville in check, winning 29-9.
