Walk-Ons is expected to be the new sponsor of the Independence Bowl.
Jacob Hester, a Shreveport native and former LSU Tiger and NFL player, tweeted out on his Hangin’ With Hester account, that the restaurant group would be the new sponsor of the bowl game.
Hester has since deleted the tweet, but not before it had been retweeted nationally.
Hester is a part-owner of a local Walk-Ons franchise.
The Independence Bowl Foundation has reached out to NBC 6 Sports, inviting us to an announcement scheduled for Wednesday.
