The 2014 New Era Pinstripe Bowl will be the first in the bowl's history to feature teams from the Big Ten and ACC. Each respective conference has entered into multi-year agreements with the New York Yankees and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl to have a representative school play in the game - the Big Ten from 2014 through 2021 and the ACC from 2014 through 2019.

Established in 2010, the New Era Pinstripe Bowl has seen increased attendance in each of its first four years of existence. In 2013, a sellout crowd of 47,122 saw the Notre Dame Fighting Irish return to Yankee Stadium and defeat the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, 29-16. This year's game will be nationally televised by ESPN, which has also secured national and local radio rights for ESPN Radio.
