R + L Carriers New Orleans Bowl Game History:
The R + L Carriers New Orleans Bowl has been playing at the Louisiana Superdome since 2001. In 2005 it played at the Cajun Field due to Hurricane Katrina damage, to which the game was called the New Orleans Bowl at Lafayette . The New Orleans Bowl matches a Conference USA team with a Sun Belt Conference team. It is the Sun Belt's only guaranteed Bowl Game. Previously sponsored by Wyndham hotels, in 2004 the R + L Carriers took over the Bowl Sponsorship.
Last years New Orleans Bowl hosted the University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles against the Troy University of Trojans in a closely matched 30 to 27 win for the Eagles. Troy had been the Sun Belts Conference title winner, whereas Southern Miss lost two of their eight regular season games.
The game was a regular drama of events, as the Southern Miss head coach cost his team a penalty time out for having them wear their home game uniforms instead of away game uniforms. They had another tough break when their wide receiver snapped his leg in half, spending that night in the hospital. The MVP for that game was Southern Misses Quarter Back Austin Davis.
