AutoZone Liberty Bowl Preview History
AutoZone Liberty Bowl 2 2
Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium - Memphis, Tenn The stadium is well built with many concession stands and restrooms. Although women complained about long waits. The concourse could use just a bit more lighting to be an inviting atmosphere. Tunnels from concourse to upper levels are just a little narrow and crowded. Stairs up to seating are a bit odd and are at different heights making the climb difficult. Each seat is wide enough, even with coats and rainwear. Leg room is a bit small for taller folks and you must stand to let people pass by. Score board is large and replays are clear. The sound system is fine and announcer easy to hear and understand. Field lighting is adequate, although the FieldTurf field is showing it's age and seemed very slick when slightly wet and might have needed grooming and a bit more rubber added. January 2, 2013
