Report: Louisiana Tech To Play In The 2019 Independence Bowl
The 2019 Walk-On's Independence Bowl will kickoff December 26th at 3pm local time at Independence Stadium in Shreveport. You'll be able to hear the game on 1130 The Tiger in Shreveport and Bossier once again.
Rivals.com site BleedTechBlue has reported that Louisiana Tech will be heading to Shreveport for the 2019 Independence Bowl.
If the report holds up, it will be Tech's 5th appearance in the Indy Bowl, matching Ole Miss' record. It will be the first time the Bulldogs play in the game since 2008.
This will be the final year for a lot of the current agreements around the Indy Bowl. It will be the last time Walk-On's will sponsor the game, abandoning Shreveport's bowl game after three years. This will be the last time the match up should feature the SEC vs ACC, as both conferences will move to new bowl aliments without the Indy Bowl being involved.
Next year will start a new partnership with Army for Shreveport's bowl game.
