BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - ESPN Regional Television announced Thursday the 2010-11 Papajohns.com Bowl will be played Jan. 8, 2011, at Legion Field.
 
ESPN, in a statement Thursday to FOX6 News, said the game, in its fifth year, will feature a team from the Big East Conference against a team from the Southeastern Conference.  It is scheduled to be televised nationally on Jan. 8, 2011, at 11 a.m. CT on ESPN.
 
"We are excited about playing on a Saturday as we have done in three of our four previous games," said Mark Meadows, executive director of Papajohns.com Bowl, in the statement. "Saturdays have always been popular with fans, giving families an opportunity to attend the game together. Additionally, as the only bowl game televised on January 8th, more national attention will be focused on the Papajohns.com Bowl and Birmingham."
 
ESPN said the 2009-10 Papajohns.com Bowl attracted a record crowd of 45,254 at Legion Field on Jan. 2, as Connecticut defeated South Carolina, 20-7. The Big East boasts a 4-0 record in the Papajohns.com Bowl.
