What is now known as the Belk Bowl was originally certified as the Queen City Bowl in 2002. It has since been known as the Continental Tire Bowl and the Meineke Car Care Bowl. It is currently a matchup between teams from the ACC and the AAC.
Raycom Sports started the bowl and is still the owner of it. The ACC signed an agreement to provide one of the bowl's teams in 2006. That year, Boston College, the conference's sixth bowl-eligible team, played Navy, which had signed a one-year agreement with the bowl. Starting in 2007, the Big East -- now the American Athletic Conference -- provided the team's other participant.
• NC State's Stephen Tulloch had 15 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble in the 2005 game, leading the Wolfpack to a 14-0 win against South Florida.
• Boston College snagged victory from the jaws of defeat in 2006. Navy, up 24-22 and with the ball, lost possession when Reggie Campbell fumbled a pitch. BC's Jo-Lonn Dunbar recovered and two plays later, Steve Aponavicius hit a 37-yard field goal to give BC its ninth win of the season.
• The 2008 game drew, at the time, the largest crowd (73,712) to see a college football game in the state of North Carolina. West Virginia quarterback Pat White threw for 332 yards, including the game-winning 20-yard TD pass in the fourth quarter to Alric Arnett as the Mountaineers held off UNC 31-30.
