NEW YORK (AP) -- The American Athletic Conference and the Military Bowl have agreed to a six-year deal that starts in 2014 and will match the league against an Atlantic Coast Conference team.
The University of Tulsa is to join the American starting in 2014.
A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press the Atlantic Coast Conference is expected to be the other league with a tie-in to the Military Bowl.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal with the ACC was still being completed.
ESPN.com first reported the deal with the ACC and the Military Bowl.
