Meineke Bowl extends Big East deal through 2013
The agreement announced Wednesday comes as bowl officials continue discussions with the Atlantic Coast Conference about extending its tie-in with the game.
The bowl at Bank of America Stadium has pitted teams from the Big East and ACC since its inception in 2002. Last year's game was a sellout as West Virginia beat North Carolina.
This year's Meineke Bowl is Dec. 26 and will be televised by ESPN.
