Big 12 agrees to deal with Liberty Bowl

By Brandon Chatmon

Memphis will soon become a Big 12 bowl destination.

The conference has signed a six-year deal with the Liberty Bowl. Here are additional details on the deal:

Starting in 2014, teams from the Big 12 and SEC also will face off in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, which will feature both conference champions unless one or both teams are selected for the College Football Playoff, and the Texas Bowl in Houston. The Big 12 representative will take the place of a Conference USA team when that conference's contract with the bowl expires after this season.
