MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Raycom Media has renewed as the title sponsor of the Camellia Bowl through the 2018 bowl season. The extension was announced Thursday by bowl officials at a luncheon in Montgomery.

The third annual Raycom Media Camellia Bowl will be played Saturday, Dec. 17, 2016 at historic Cramton Bowl in Montgomery and will be televised at 4:30 p.m. CST (5:30 p.m. ET) on ESPN.

Named after the Alabama state flower, the Camellia Bowl is a college football bowl game that annually features a representative from the Sun Belt Conference against one from the Mid-American Conference.

“We couldn’t ask for a better title sponsor than Raycom Media whose headquarters are located in Montgomery, Alabama,” said Johnny Williams, Raycom Media Camellia Bowl executive director. “The vision and support set forth by Paul McTear, and the entire Raycom Media team, has had an amazing impact on the event.” 

At the Thursday luncheon Raycom Media CEO Paul McTear was given the first Paul McTear Impact Award for his role in the Camellia Bowl's success. The award will be given annually to individuals who have ''great impact on the bowl with a shared vision of excellence".
