Shreveport gets some good news on the football front. Radiance Technologies and the Independence Bowl Foundation have agreed to a one-year extension – securing a six-year partnership for the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl.
“We are thrilled to continue working with the Independence Bowl Foundation for another five years," said Radiance Technologies CEO Bill Bailey. "2020 was a difficult year for everyone, but we are excited about moving forward in this partnership – one that we believe has the makings of a long and fruitful relationship. The staff, executive committee and the entire organization are first-class, and we look forward to strengthening the partnership we have established.”
This extension will keep Radiance Technologies as the title sponsor of the local bowl game through the 2025 season.
"Radiance Technologies, by extending our agreement after a year in which we had no bowl game, is strongly stating its confidence in our partnership," said Independence Bowl Foundation Chairman Frank Auer. "Despite the hardships that this past year has brought, the Independence Bowl Foundation carried out over a dozen other activities and negotiated six nationwide ads that were run during other bowl games. This diligence by the Foundation has been recognized and rewarded by Radiance Technologies, and we are very grateful to continue working alongside our tremendous title sponsor for at least the next five years."
The game will feature an annual matchup of either Army West Point (Army) or Brigham Young University (BYU) against a rotation of the Pac-12, American Athletic Conference or Conference USA.
Here's the planned matchup pairings:
  • 2021: BYU vs. C-USA
  • 2022: AAC vs. Army
  • 2023: BYU vs. Pac-12
  • 2024: Army vs. Pac-12
  • 2025: BYU vs. C-USA
