CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The Meineke Bowl is keeping its coveted Saturday date.
Bowl officials said Wednesday that this year's game will be played at 1 p.m. Dec. 27. ESPN will televise the game.
The bowl is played at Bank of America Stadium and pits a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference against a Big East school. Wake Forest beat Connecticut 24-10 last year.

The bowl's payout next year will increase to $1 million per team, up from $750,000.
