Game to Kick-Off New Year’s Holiday Weekend

 

The 58th Annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl Football Classic will be played Friday, December 30, 2016 at 12 Noon EST / 11 AM CST. Friday, December 30 will mark the beginning of the long New Year’s holiday weekend. The AutoZone Liberty Bowl will feature teams from the SEC and Big 12 Conference and will be televised nationally and internationally on ESPN and broadcast by ESPN Radio.
 
“We’re thrilled to have the AutoZone Liberty Bowl serve as the signature event to start the New Year’s holiday weekend in Memphis,” said Steve Ehrhart, Executive Director of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. “This date and time gives us a tremendous opportunity to showcase two great teams, our Memphis community and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to those attending the game and millions of ESPN viewers.”
 
“We have a great week of events planned for both our local supporters and fans following their team from out of town to enjoy,” said Ehrhart. “This is a wonderful opportunity for Memphis to roll out the red carpet and welcome the teams and thousands of fans to our community for a memorable bowl experience. We invite fans to experience all that Memphis and the AutoZone Liberty Bowl have to offer during the week and then stay over to ring in the New Year at the famous guitar drop on Beale Street.”
 
The AutoZone Liberty Bowl has an action-packed, fun-filled week of events planned leading up to the game beginning with the Bass Pro Shops Team Welcome Party on December 26th. The schedule of events will also include the Pro Rodeo presented by Ford Trucks (December 27); Players and Coaches Luncheon (December 28); Beale Street Parade and Bash on Beale Pep Rally (December 29); President’s Gala (December 29) and Pre-Game Buffet (December 30).
 
With the December 30th game date announcement, the AutoZone Liberty Bowl continues the excitement and momentum created by last year’s game between Arkansas and Kansas State. The Hogs and Wildcats match up attracted the largest ESPN audience ever for the AutoZone Liberty Bowl (more than 7 million viewers) and a sold out crowd of 61,136.
