BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — The 13th annual Birmingham Bowl is set for Saturday, Dec. 22. The game will be played at Historic Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala., and will feature a team from the Southeastern Conference against a team from the American Athletic Conference. Kickoff for the nationally televised game is set for noon ET/11 a.m. CT on ESPN.

“Mark your calendars now to join us at historic Legion Field on December 22nd,” said Mark Meadows, executive director of the Birmingham Bowl. “The Birmingham Bowl is a fantastic time to show your support of not only the teams playing but also the city of Birmingham. This Saturday morning time slot on ESPN will be a great national showcase for our city.”

In last year’s bowl game, South Florida defeated Texas Tech 38-34 in an exciting game that broke many of the bowl’s previous records.

Since the game’s inception in 2006, the Birmingham Bowl has generated over $145 million in economic impact for the Birmingham community, according to figures provided by the Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Tickets for the 13th annual Birmingham Bowl will go on sale to the public on Monday, Oct. 1. Ticket pricing will be $50 for East and West reserved sideline seating and $30 for general admission corner seats.
