  Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Shortly after its completion, the then-struggling Liberty Bowl post-season college football game, which had been contested in Philadelphia since its inception in 1959, was relocated to Memphis, where it has been contested annually ever since, and the stadium's name was eventually changed to honor this event.
The Liberty Bowl is more than adequate as a venue for the University of Memphis Tigers, who are generally not much of a gate draw unless competing against another area school such as Tennessee, Ole Miss, or Mississippi State.
And the Liberty Bowl game itself, while a better audience draw in recent years since it became the destination for the regular-season champion of Conference USA, still is almost never a sellout.
