5 Odd College Bowl Game Sponsors

AdvoCare V100 Bowl
Dec. 31
Sponsor: AdvoCare
Location: Shreveport, La.
Matchup: Arizona vs. Boston College
Payout: $1.15 million

It's a great matchup with a nice time slot, but the former Independence Bowl is now saddled with a product-specific name that's going to elicit a shoulder shrug from all but a niche audience.

Fortunately for AdvoCare, the company picked that niche perfectly. AdvoCare produces nutritional and performance supplements and isn't exactly unknown in the sports world. The product they're pushing in this bowl -- the V100 vitamin and mineral supplement -- is geared toward a far broader audience, but a sporting event isn't such a bad place to plug it.

This bowl may regain its independence in name and spirit in 2014, though, as AdvoCare has announced this will be the last season of its sponsorship. While just about any sponsor money helps, turning a bowl with nearly 40 years of history into an ad for a $35 bag of supplemental fruit chews isn't a sustainable answer.
