Duck Commander becomes sponsor of Independence Bowl

Shreveport, LA ( - Independence Bowl Foundation officials announced Wednesday that Duck Commander will become the new title sponsor of the Independence Bowl.

The partnership will reinstate "Independence" as part of the bowl's name following a one-year hiatus. The game was called the AdvoCare V100 Bowl this past season.

"The Independence Bowl Foundation and this community are thrilled to have Duck Commander as our new title sponsor, and we're honored they've chosen to place "Independence" back in the bowl's name," incoming bowl chairman Paul Pratt said. "The Independence Bowl has a long history of bringing valuable and exciting sports entertainment to the Shreveport-Bossier City area. This is a new day and an excellent opportunity for college football in Louisiana."

The Independence Bowl is the 11th oldest bowl game and is played at Independence Stadium in Shreveport, Louisiana.
