A NEW ERA BEGINS
The college football posteason will see big changes in 2014 with the arrival of the new College Football Playoff. The revamped postseason format also includes new and exciting changes for the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Starting this year, the AutoZone Liberty Bowl will feature two of the most successful and nationally recognizable conferences in the country, the SEC and Big 12 Conference. These two tradition-rich power conferences are slated to play in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl for the enxt six seasons, 2014-2019.
On the SEC side, the AutoZone Liberty Bowl will be in a pool with five other bowl games in the conference's new team selection process. The SEC teams in the mix for these bowl will be determined after team selections are made by the College Football Playoff and the Capital One Bowl. The six pool bowls will not have priority numbers in the new selection process. Instead, the bowls will work with the SEC and the bowl-eligible teams to determine which team the SEC will assign to each bowl.
On the Big 12 side, the AutoZone Liberty Bowl will have the fourth pick after teams are selected for the College Football Playoff.
