Independence Bowl gets new sponsor and new title
SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — The Independence Bowl has a new title sponsor.
The Shreveport, Louisiana-based bowl game will be called the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl, officials announced Tuesday. The Huntsville, Alabama-based company struck a five-year deal that will cover the bowl game’s new set of contracts with Conference USA, Pac-12, American Athletic Conference, Army and BYU, The Shreveport Times reported.
“The long-term partnership with Radiance Technologies is very exciting for the Independence Bowl, as it brings tremendous potential for the future as we embark on our 45th year,” 2020 Independence Bowl Chairman Frank Auer said. “It will allow the superior work Radiance Technologies is performing for our military, along with the top-quality events the bowl undertakes each year to be highlighted to millions of people as we push forward together.”
Radiance Technologies is an employee-owned small business prime contractor that develops customer-focused solutions in cyber security, systems engineering and other areas for the Department of Defense, other government agencies and the national intelligence community, the company’s website said.
Radiance Technologies’ contract runs from 2020 to 2024. It becomes the ninth title sponsor of the I-Bowl, replacing Walk On’s, which held that spot from 2017-2019.
