“Being a top supporter of the Birmingham Bowl for the second consecutive year is an incredible honor for all of us here at LINE-X. College football is one of Alabama’s passions, and one of the highlights every year is the Birmingham Bowl,” said Dennis Weese, president of LINE-X. “As an Alabama-based business, partnering with organizations like Birmingham Bowl is a way to show our commitment to the people of this great state and help support events that bring people together for the holidays.”
LINE-X is also a supporter this year of the 2018 Armed Forces Bowl between the University of Houston Cougars and the U.S. Military Academy Army Black Knights at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas, also airing live on ESPN on Dec. 22 at 2:30 p.m. CST.
