The AutoZone Liberty Bowl is an annual U.S. American college football bowl game played in December of each year since 1959. The bowl game was played in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at John F. Kennedy Stadium (see Municipal Stadium) until 1963. Initially, the game, the only cold-weather bowl game of its time, was plagued by poor attendance (the 1963 game drew only 8,309 spectators), so the 1964 game was the first bowl game ever played indoors in Atlantic City, New Jersey at Convention Hall before 6,059 fans.

Since 1965, the game has made its home in Memphis, Tennessee in Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium to much larger crowds and has established itself as one of the oldest non-BCS bowls. Since 1997, the regular season champion of Conference USA has served as the host team. From 1998 to 2003, the opponent for the C-USA champion was the Mountain West Conference champion. However, in 2004 one of the berths went to WAC winner, Boise State (Utah, which had won the Mountain West, actually qualified for a BCS berth and was unavailable) and in 2005, an at-large team-in this case, the WAC's Fresno State- was chosen (TCU, who had won the Mountain West, instead chose to play in the Houston Bowl). Beginning with the 2006 football season, the game will match teams from Conference USA and the Southeastern Conference. The Liberty Bowl was sponsored by AXA Financial and was known as the AXA Liberty Bowl from 1997 to 2003. Since 2004, the game has been sponsored by Memphis-based auto parts retailer AutoZone, and is now called the AutoZone Liberty Bowl. 1965 (MCMLXV) was a common year starting on Friday (the link is to a full 1965 calendar). ...
