Each game would match an SEC team against a high-quality team from another conference. The format compares to the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic, which has been held annually in Atlanta since 2008 and last year injected a reported $44.3 million into that city’s economy.
The Music City Sports and Entertainment Group, Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau and Nashville Sports Council are among the organizations planning the game, sources said, while the Titans would provide use of the stadium.
LP Field is the home of the Tennessee Titans as well as the Music City Bowl.
