(WXYZ) -- The Quick Lane Bowl at Ford Field won't be played this season, the Detroit Lions announced Friday.

The Lions own and operate the bowl game, which began in 2014. The Quick Lane Bowl is one of several bowl games opting out for 2020.

"The Detroit Lions and Quick Lane Tire and Auto Center share in the great disappointment of not having a bowl game this season," the team said in a statement. "We've collectively taken great pride in not only establishing a new collegiate bowl game tradition in Detroit, but also creating memorable experiences for student athletes. We are looking forward to doing both again in 2021 and seasons to come."

Pittsburgh beat Eastern Michigan 34-30 in the 2019 edition of the Quick Lane Bowl.
