Mark December 30th, 11 a.m. down on your calendars. That's the date and kickoff for the 58th Annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl.

The 11 a.m. start is the earliest in Liberty Bowl history.

Executive Director Steve Ehrhart says the participating teams will arrive in Memphis December 26 and take part in week long activities leading up to the game.

The AutoZone Liberty Bowl, which features the SEC versus the Big 12, saw Arkansas beat Kansas State in last year's contest.

This year's game is the first of four games on December 30.

The Music City Bowl in Nashville kicks off at 3:30, followed by the Sun Bowl in El Paso and the Capital One Orange Bowl in Miami.
