Birmingham will continue to be the home of the Magic City Classic game until at least 2018.
The city council this afternoon approved a five-year extension of the contract that brings Alabama State and Alabama A&M to Legion Field each October for the Classic.
The contract calls for increasing the amount of money the city pays each school in each year of the contract.
The city will pay more than $300,000 to the schools by the end of the deal.
