SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - The Pac-12 and Big 12 conferences have a new six-year deal with the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in Tempe.
Beginning after the 2014 regular season, the bowl will match the sixth selection from the Pac-12 against the fifth pick from the Big 12, after selections by the College Football Playoff.
The deal means a return to the game for the Pac-12 after an eight-year absence.
This year's game is set for Dec. 28 at Sun Devil Stadium, and will feature teams from Big Ten and Big 12.
