The annual Quick Lane Bowl, regularly played at Detroit's Ford Field every December 26th, will not be played this season.

Here's the announcement via Twitter:


The Quick Lane Bowl has been played since 2014.  Its predecessors, the Little Caesars Bowl and the Motor City Bowl played at the Silverdome and then Ford Field since 1997.

The game generally pairs a Big Ten team against a Mid-American Conference squad.  Although last year, Pittsburgh (out of the Atlantic Coast Conference) defeated Eastern Michigan 34-30 las December 26th (picture seen above).
