The nation's 11th-oldest bowl game has a tradition of being televised on ESPN networks, and that tradition will last at least another six years, as the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl and ESPN have reached an agreement covering the 2020-2025 Radiance Technologies Independence Bowls.
2020 marks the 29th-consecutive year that the Independence Bowl will be on an ESPN network, with the final year of the agreement being the 34th-consecutive year. That 2025 Independence Bowl will also be the 50th anniversary of Shreveport-Bossier City's annual bowl game, as the first game was played in 1976 between McNeese State and Tulsa, and the game was named the Independence Bowl to honor the nation's bicentennial.
While the partnership with ESPN won't change, the product on the field will have a different look over the length of the new agreement. The Independence Bowl Foundation announced a five-year agreement with Huntsville, Ala.-based Radiance Technologies to be the game’s title sponsor on April 21, 2020 - a partnership that will run through the 2024 edition of the bowl - and announced new primary agreements in January 2020 that will bring a rotation of Army West Point and BYU to Shreveport to face off against a rotation of the Pac-12 Conference, American Athletic Conference and Conference USA from 2020-2025.
