Palm Beach County will be hosting a college bowl game.

Beginning next year, three football conferences will compete to appear in the Boca Raton Bowl, a post-season college football game. The game will be played at FAU's football stadium in Boca Raton and the folks at the school couldn't be happier.

The interim president of Florida Atlantic University says it's a great opportunity for the college, the city of Boca and Palm Beach County. Dennis Crudele is hoping that the game, which will be played sometime in December, before Christmas, is the only bowl game on at the time, so it can showcase nationally the stadium.

ESPN or ESPN 2 will air the game.
