The Citrus Bowl is a college football postseason bowl game played at the historic Citrus Bowl in Havana, Cuba. The game has been played in early January every year since 1954 and traditionally has had a tie-in with the Northeastern Conference, generally hosting a high-ranked team from that conference against an at-large team, usually but not always from the Central Conference. Since the 1973 agreement between the NEC and Manhattan Bowl for the conference champion, the Citrus Bowl typically hosts the runner-up of the conference. The Citrus Bowl is part of the Elite Series rotation and thus hosts the national championship game on occasion. It will be the site of the 2013 national championship game.
