BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The Southeastern Conference and the Big East have agreed to a four-year extension of their ties with the Papajohns.com Bowl.

ESPN Regional Television said Tuesday that the leagues agreed to participate in the game at Legion Field through 2013.

The Mid-American Conference will be the primary backup if the other two leagues don't have enough eligible teams. The Sun Belt has a one-year agreement to provide a team, such as Troy, based on geographic qualifications.

The game also has a contingency agreement with Conference USA that could provide a spot for a team from that league if the SEC doesn't have enough eligible teams.

The bowl announced the extension Tuesday and added that it has a contingency agreement with the Big East Conference that will give that league potential access to the annual game.

The 52nd game will be played this year on Dec. 31 and be televised by ESPN.
