A local university's football team is headed for a bowl game, but not the one you might think.
Alderson Broaddus University will host the first East Coast Athletic Conference Futures Bowl on Saturday.
The event highlights up-and-coming teams who are new to the conference.
Coach Denny Creehan said it's a great opportunity to share Alderson Broaddus University with other schools in the ECAC.
"It encompasses I don't know how many different leagues across the eastern United States, but it's a ton of exposure, for not only our football team, but most especially for our university," said Denny Creehan, ABU Head Football Coach.
Alderson Broaddus University will host Florida Tech in that bowl game.
