SEPTEMBER 11, 2014
For 56 years, the AutoZone Liberty Bowl has been a celebration of America’s freedom, patriotism and liberty. During that time, the Bowl has recognized and honored distinguished Americans including military leaders, outstanding coaches, legendary entertainers, business leaders and great athletes for their outstanding service to our nation.
In 2001, we presented the AutoZone Liberty Bowl’s highest honor to the brave men and women of the New York City Police Department, New York City Fire Department and First Responders for their heroic efforts on September 11, 2001.
May we always remember those affected by the events of September 11, 2001--remember those who lost their lives, those who lost loved ones and the countless acts of bravery and heroism that occurred that day.
We hope you join us on December 29 at the 56th AutoZone Liberty Bowl as we pay tribute to America during the patriotic pre-game ceremonies.
We want to express our condolences to Mississippi State and Ole Miss on the passing this week of their legendary broadcasters, Jack Cristil and Stan Sandroni. We extend our deepest sympathies to the families of these two great gentlemen who contributed so much to their respective universities and college football.
