The University of Pittsburgh football team has accepted an invitation to play Bowling Green State University of the Mid-American Conference in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. The game, held at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich., will be played on December 26, 2013 in front of a national ESPN television audience (6 p.m. ET).

The matchup between Pitt (6-6, 3-5 ACC) and the Falcons (10-3, 7-1 MAC) will be the fourth in the schools' history with Pitt holding the 2-1 series advantage, which dates back to 1999. Bowling Green is coming off their biggest win of the season with a 47-27 win over then-No. 14 Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship game on Friday.

"We're excited for the chance to play in another game against such a quality opponent," said head coach Paul Chryst. "Bowling Green was impressive not only in their MAC Championship win, but all season long and we have a competitive game of football ahead. We are grateful to the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl and the City of Detroit for offering us this opportunity."

"We are very pleased to have this opportunity for Coach Chryst and our team to play in another bowl game," Pitt athletic director Steve Pederson said. "The location and the date are ideal for Pitt fans to be able to enjoy being a part of the bowl experience. A bowl appearance is significant in many ways, especially as Coach Chryst continues to build this program toward our next championship. We are grateful to the people of Detroit for making this possible. We will have an excited team arriving in Detroit for the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl."

Pitt will play in its 11th bowl since 2000 and its sixth consecutive since 2008. The Panthers are 12-17 all-time in bowl games.
