All set at Independence Stadium

Ladies and gentlemen, everything is ready at Independence Stadium for kickoff. In a minute the kickoff will be given and hopefully this edition of the Independence Bowl will be a great game.

2:17 PM5 months ago

Independence Bowl

The Independence Bowl is a National Collegiate Athletic Association NCAA postseason approved Division I college football game played annually each December at Independence Stadium in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The Independence Bowl got its name because it was inaugurated in 1976, the year of the Bicentennial of United States Independence. The bowl's current title sponsor is Radiance Technologies, according to an announced deal for the 2020-2025 editions. Only one previous edition of the bowl, in 2013, has not used the Independence Bowl brand.

The 2020 bowl edition was canceled on December 20, 2020 due to insufficient equipment available to fill all 2020-21 bowl games, following a season impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

2:12 PM5 months ago

Ready the dressing room of the local team

Honestly, this isn't the hottest bowl offering for BYU, but the Cougars have an excellent shot this afternoon to hit 11 wins for the second straight season. It would be the first time they've accomplished that feat since the Cougars finished No. 5 in the 1996 season.

 

2:07 PM5 months ago

Warm-up UAB

The UAB players are also on the Independence Stadium pitch warming up prior to kick-off, which was postponed a few minutes later due to bad weather.

WEATHER UPDATE

WEATHER DELAY

Kickoff has moved up to 2:41pm CT / 1:41pm MT.

1:52 PM5 months ago

This is how UAB arrives

The UAB comes into this game with an overall record of 8-4. On the year, they finished with a 6-2 record in United States Conference activity. Overall, the team averages 29.3 points per game and allows 24.9, which is good for ranking 46th in college football. The team also finished the regular season with an average score of +4.4 points per game. We'll see what they're capable of this afternoon at the Independence Bowl.

1:47 PM5 months ago

This is how BYU arrives

BYU comes into this game on a 5-game winning streak that helped them end with a 10-2 overall record. On offense, the team averages 31.2 points per game while ranking 18th in yards per game with 448. Defensively, it is the 47th best unit in college football, holding opponents at 25 points per game.

1:42 PM5 months ago

The battle in the trenches will be key against totally different styles

The UAB must win in the trenches: Statistically, the Blazers have been much better at stopping the run, allowing opponents just 104.2 yards per game on the ground and limiting them to 3.03 yards per rush. They rank 11th nationally in ground defense, while BYU ranks 67th. BYU's passing game is statistically superior, but UAB may have a shot if it wins the battle in the trenches and makes the Cougars great. one-dimensional on offense.
1:37 PM5 months ago

The Independence Bowl is back

After taking a hiatus last year amid the strong COVID-19 pandemic, the Independence Bowl is back this year with a couple of teams making their first game appearances. They will meet this afternoon BYU, which is coming off a 10-2 regular season, and the UAB, which finished 8-4 in a battle that had never been played before.

This marks the UAB's fifth consecutive season finishing above .500 since returning to the field after a two-year hiatus in 2015 and 2016. Winning the BYU team would mark a breakthrough for the Blazers.
