Recent Belk Bowl Games:
The Belk Bowl is an annual postseason college football bowl game played in Charlotte, North Carolina. The game features the fifth choice teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and the Big East Conference. The 2006 game was played between Navy and Boston College, Navy having made an agreement with the bowl to play a team from the ACC that particular year. Since then, the Big East has returned as the conference tie in for the bowl. The Belk Bowl was originally called the Queen City Bowl, Meineke Car Care Bowl, and then the Continental Tire Bowl until Belk took over as sponsor in 2011.
First played in 2002, Virginia won the first two Continental Tire Bowls. Matt Schaub was chosen as the MVP of the 2004 game. Boston College defeated North Carolina the following year. NC State would shut out South Florida in 2005, and in 2006 Boston College won again, this time defeating Navy.
