Plot Synopsis

The Liberty Bowl -- the seventh oldest college bowl game -- takes place annually at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis, Tennessee. The game was founded in Philadelphia in 1959 and the inaugural game featured a match-up between Penn State and Alabama. After five years in Philadelphia, the game moved indoors to Atlantic City Convention Center for one year and in the process became the first indoor college bowl game. Every Liberty Bowl since 1965 has been held at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium in Memphis. Beginning in 2004, Memphis-based AutoZone, Inc., became the Bowl's title sponsor. The Liberty Bowl has conference tie-ins with the Big 12 and SEC, with the American Athletic Conference as an alternate.
