ATLANTA -- The Chick-fil-A Bowl and the Atlantic Coast Conference have agreed to a four-year extension that will keep the conference's first selection after the BCS coming to the game at the Georgia Dome.

The bowl will have the first pick of Atlantic Coast Conference teams after the BCS selections through the 2013 season. The league has held that selection since 2006.

This year's Chick-fil-A Bowl will be played on Dec. 31.

The bowl game matches a Southeastern Conference team against an ACC team.
