On behalf of all the members of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl Festival Association, the staff of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl and our community volunteers, we want to congratulate the University of Tulsa on its win in the 54th annual AutoZone Liberty Bowl. We enjoyed hosting the Golden Hurricane and their wonderful fans during an exciting and memorable bowl week in Memphis.
We want to thank the entire University of Tulsa family, led by President Steadman Upham, Executive Vice President Kevan Buck and head football coach Bill Blankenship. The Golden Hurricane fans were enthusiastic and displayed great class here in Memphis.
Under the guidance of coach Blankenship, the Golden Hurricane student-athletes demonstrated character and perseverance. The TU football program certainly has a bright future both on and off the field.
The AutoZone Liberty Bowl has a long history and tradition of showcasing many of college football's greatest teams, players and coaches over the past 54 years. We are proud that this year's AutoZone Liberty Bowl MVP Trey Watts, Outstanding Defensive Award recipient Shawn Jackson, Coach Blankenship and the entire 2012 Golden Hurricane team are now a part of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl's rich legacy.
Happy New Year and best wishes for a prosperous 2013.
Editor's note: Ehrhart is executive director of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.
