The New Orleans Bowl is a post-season college football bowl game
certified by the NCAA that has been played annually at the Louisiana
Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana since 2001. The game was sponsored
by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts from 2002 to 2004 and was officially called
the Wyndham New Orleans Bowl.
Due to damage by Hurricane Katrina to the Louisiana Superdome, where the
game is usually played, the 2005 game was played on December 20 in
Lafayette, Louisiana at Cajun Field on the campus of University of
Louisiana at Lafayette, and was dubbed the New Orleans Bowl at
Lafayette. The game returned to the Superdome on December 22, 2006, with
a new corporate sponsor in freight company R+L Carriers, renaming the
game the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.
