After the 2017 Gasparilla Bowl, ESPN asked for t-shirt concepts for the 2018 game (team logos and date from the 2017 game were used as placeholders). This concept uses the double meaning of "battle" and "invasion" as pirate terms to match the overall theme, as well as for the game itself (battle) and teams arriving in Tampa Bay with their fan bases (invasion). The pirate imagery was also more subtle than the 2017 look to put more focus on the game itself and the match-up. Unfortunately, these were never shown to the client so never had a chance to be produced.
