It's a very long shot, but Bright House Networks Stadium at the University of Central Florida could end up hosting the 2014 Russell Athletic (formerly Champs Sport) and Capital One bowls.
As the long needed renovations ramp up for Orlando's Citrus Bowl stadium, the company that runs the games is thinking about back-up plans if there are any kind of construction conflicts with the bowls.
One option might be a move to UCF, but Bright House Networks Stadium seats almost exactly 20,000 fewer fans. So the potential loss in ticket revenue makes it less attractive. Still, UCF and Citrus Sports each confirm to FOX 35 the possibility has been discussed albeit in a very preliminary and informal manner.
If the renovations were to get in the way of the bowls, Citrus Sports could be forced to move the games. It has happened before. Construction delays at the stadium in the 1970s forced the old Tangerine Bowl to be played on the University of Florida campus.
Florida Citrus Sports emphasizes that any talk of moving the bowl games are simply an effort to have a back-up plan in place just in case there are any conflicts. The main plan is for the renovations to happen without disrupting the games in any way.
