The NCAA is expected to add three new bowl games to the schedule in the 2020 season, according to college football insiderBrett McMurphy.
One of the new bowl games will likely be at Wrigley Field in Chicago, according to McMurphy's report. That game is set to feature a Big Ten team against an ACC opponent. Myrtle Beach is also likely to host one of the new bowl games, while the location of the third game is not clear.
