Welcome to Memphis and the 61st Annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl Classic!
Our City is happy to have you here and proud to bring you this outstanding
competition. Whether your loyalties lie with the Navy Midshipmen or the
Kansas State Wildcats, we are proud to support your team in college football’s
seventh oldest bowl game – the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
Memphis is extremely fortunate to be the home of St. Jude Children’s Research
Hospital, an internationally recognized biomedical research center dedicated to finding cures for
cancer and other catastrophic diseases in children. It is a proud tradition of the AutoZone Liberty
Bowl to partner with St. Jude to bring well-deserved funding and exposure to the lifesaving research
and treatments happening there every day. I ask you to join us in supporting the children, doctors
and scientists of St. Jude in their battle to end childhood diseases so that all our children can one day
live healthy, disease-free lives. Because of the generosity of donors such as you, all St. Jude patients are
treated regardless of their ability to pay. Please visit stjude.org for more information.
Players, coaches and fans, enjoy your time in our fair City. I wish you all the best of luck for a safe and
exciting AutoZone Liberty Bowl experience!
Mayor, City of Memphis
