MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Liberty Bowl is moving to Dec. 29 this season after having been played on Dec. 31 the last four years.
    
Bowl officials say this year's game will start at 1 p.m. local time. The last time the Liberty Bowl was on Dec. 29 was 2007, when Mississippi State beat Central Florida 10-3 before a crowd of 63,816, the largest in the bowl's history.
    
The Liberty Bowl this year will match teams from the Southeastern and Big 12 conferences. Previously, an SEC school played the Conference USA champion.
    
The Liberty Bowl started in Philadelphia in 1959 and has been held annually in Memphis since 1965.
