Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy confirmed in a tweet earlier today that Barstool nearly landed a sponsorship/title deal for a college football bowl game down in Mobile, Alabama this year.
However, that deal was broken off due to ‘pressure’ from both ESPN and the NCAA. Those are words said from reporter John Ourand.
Portnoy remains optimistic that Barstool Sports will land a bowl sponsor in the near future.
The former ‘Dollar General Bowl’ is now being sponsored by lending market company, LendingTree.
