"This is an exciting 0pp0rtunity for us on many levels. The

Rayfield Wright, to be a part of this event and this community."
The Independence Bowl provides one of the most attractive match-ups of
any bowl game in the nation, showcasing teams from the Big 12 and
Southeastern Conferences. The Bowl has been televised on ESPN since 1992 to
a national audience and has become a fixture of ESPN's Bowl Week. Last
year's game, a thriller won by Missouri 38-31 over South Carolina,
garnered a 2.75 TV rating, ranking it sixth out of 20 bowl games carried on

sports, also reached an agreement today for a contract extension, keeping the
game on ESPN through 2009.
"On behalf of our entire ESPN college football team, we are very
pleased to extend our 15-year relationship with the Independence Bowl through
the 2009 game and we welcome PetroSun to what has been a tremendous
partnership," said Dave Brown, ESPN's Vice-President of Programming and
Acquisitions. "Many of college football's top programs and top players
have visited the Ark-La-Tex region each year and we look forward to more
great Big 12 vs. SEC games going forward. The Independence Bowl is
truly a community event and we look forward to continuing to be a part of
The Independence Bowl can trace its roots back to 1975 when the board
of directors of the Shreveport-Bossier City Sports Foundation conceived
the idea of bringing a postseason football game to northwest Louisiana.
Applying to the National Collegiate Athletic Association for
certification, the group's efforts were rewarded with the approval of a December
13, 1976 game. Past title partners include Poulan / WeedEater, Sanford
Corporation, and MainStay Funds.
"The Independence Bowl has a great deal of history behind it, and now
thanks to PetroSun stepping up as the title sponsor, and the extension
with ESPN that takes us through 2009, our future looks better than
ever," said Independence Bowl Executive Director Missy Setters. "We feel
like this is a tribute to the hard work of so many people over the past
30-plus years, and we couldn't be happier and more excited about the
future of the PetroSun Independence Bowl."
