Did we already know that the Mobile Bowl is no longer the Dollar General Bowl?

I’d love to play in the Alabama bowl. Hate playing too early.

That’s news to me. Also way late this year, but I like that date better than 3 days before Christmas.

Yeah I hadn’t heard either. As far as timing, historically this bowl was always around this time of year. ESPN is what forced it into some dates around Christmas.

I'm assuming they haven't found a sponsor yet?

When they do, they should go with

The SPONSOR Mobile Bowl

instead of changing the name of the bowl every other year.

That’s our assumption. It started as the Mobile, Alabama Bowl. Like Klak says, maybe it should just be something like The Mobile Bowl present by ______. Haha.

The Camellia Bowl did it right.

If Raycom ever stops being sponsor, the formula now is _____ Camellia Bowl.

They should do the same thing for Mobile. It gives it a specific name. That was one of the best things the CFP did, force "classic" names like the Peach Bowl presented by Chick Fil A instead of the Chick Fil A Bowl.

Good idea.

There were many articles last year about how the bowl game in Mobile had taken fewer and fewer sponsorship dollars, and was still losing money. Could have figures wrong, but I believe GoDaddy was giving north of 2 mil, whereas Dollar General was only giving 800k. The writing was kind of on the wall.

godaddy looks like they are coming back as the sponsor. At least from tweets I've seen.

That Twitter account still said that it "was" a bowl in its bio....so I wouldn't put much stock in that. They've kept tweeting even since they stopped the sponsorship, even advertising for the game last year which they definitely didn't sponsor.
