The Big Ten and the Detroit Lions have announced a six-year agreement to play a bowl game at Ford Field, and a person familiar with the situation says the Atlantic Coast Conference is expected to provide the opponent. 

The new bowl will start in 2014 and it has not been named or sponsored. 

The person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press the new Detroit postseason game is expected to be a matchup of Big Ten and ACC teams. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because a formal announcement had not been made. 

The new game could spell the end for the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, which has been played in Detroit and matched the Big Ten and Mid-American Conference.
