BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The Bowl will be played on
Jan. 2 next season.

ESPN Regional Television said Wednesday the game will be part of
a tripleheader televised by the network that day including the
Liberty Bowl and the Alamo Bowl.

Kickoff is 1 p.m. at Birmingham's Legion Field. The game
features a team from the Southeastern Conference against one from
the Big East.

The fourth-year bowl drew its best crowd last season for a
matchup between Rutgers and North Carolina State. That game was
played on Dec. 29.
