Big 12 unveils future bowl lineups

DALLAS — The Big 12 will have three bowl games against SEC teams each postseason.

Big 12 officials Friday announced their future seven-game bowl lineup, which is highlighted by the previously announced 12-year Sugar Bowl partnership for the leagues to match their champions. If one or both champions make it into the new College Football Playoff, other top league teams would be selected for the game in the Superdome.

All of the deals start next year, coinciding with the new playoff. Other than the Sugar Bowl, all the agreements are for the 2014-19 seasons.

The lineup:

— Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas, vs. Pac-12 opponent.

— Russell Athletic Bowl in Orlando, Fla., vs. Atlantic Coast Conference opponent.

— Texas Bowl in Houston vs. Southeastern Conference opponent.

— Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn., vs. SEC opponent.

— Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl in Tempe, Ariz., vs. Pac-12 opponent.

— Heart of Dallas Bowl vs. Conference USA opponent or Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth vs. American Athletic Conference opponent.
