[October 15, 2009]  CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Meineke Bowl has renewed its deal with the Big East that will send the conference's third selection to the North Carolina bowl through the 2013 season.

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.
