Liberty Bowl

For years, the Liberty Bowl featured the champions of Conference USA against a representative from the Southeastern Conference (SEC). While today's Liberty Bowl features different conference affiliations, the Liberty Bowl continues to hold emense tradition dating back to 1959. Held at Independence Stadium in Shreveport, Louisiana, the Liberty Bowl was formerly known as the AXA Liberty Bowl but is now sponsored by AutoZone and is called the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. Despite Rice's 44-7 loss to Mississippi State in the 2013 Liberty Bowl, Conference USA had won 3 of the past 4 Liberty Bowl games.
