IRVING, Texas (AP) - Conference USA has reached agreements on deals with six bowl games that will guarantee the league four postseason spots each year for the 2014-19 seasons.

The league also will have other bowl partnerships to announce at a later date.

Under the deals announced Tuesday with the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl in Florida, the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, the Heart of Dallas Bowl, the New Mexico Bowl and the Hawaii Bowl, C-USA will send teams to three of those five games each year. One league team will play in one of the Texas bowls each season.
