SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) - The University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the University of Houston will battle it out on the field on Friday, Dec. 23 for the 46th Annual Independence Bowl.

Officials say the games bring a lot of excitement to the Shreveport-Bossier area, especially with both teams being within driving distance of the ArkLaTex.

With the freezing temperatures today, attendees are encouraged to bundle up and bring blankets. However, portable heaters will not be allowed in the stadium.

For a little extra fun, the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau created a gam called the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl Passport. The passport program encourages locals and visitors to visit other places in the city while in town. After getting your pass, there will be a list of places to visit. Visiting each place gives you a certain amount of points that can be redeemed for prizes!

You can access the passport until Dec. 31. Prizes will then be mailed out at the beginning of the new year.

The Ragin’ Cajuns and the Houston Cougars will kickoff at Independence Stadium at 2 p.m.
