Duke’s Mayo Bowl Prediction

In this situation, West Virginia has the better defense and finished the regular season more impressively.

Duke's Mayo Bowl Format

After a decade of sponsoring this bowl game, Belk pulled out of the title role at the conclusion of the 2019 edition of this game. That left this bowl looking for a sponsor, and it was announced that Duke’s Mayo would become the new sponsor in the summer of 2020.

This game has always featured an ACC team since it is in the heart of ACC country. From 2002 to 2013, the ACC took on a team from the Big East in Charlotte, but the dissolution of the conference’s football programs led to the Duke’s Mayo Bowl featuring teams from the SEC and ACC between 2014 and 2019.

The ACC will take on a Big Ten team in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl in even-numbered years and an SEC team in odd-numbered years.
