Duck Commander, the company that makes the famous duck calls of the same name, is reportedly set to purchase the rights to the Independence Bowl, or AdvoCare V100 Bowl as it has been known in recent years.

The deal will reportedly run through 2019, and this news comes shortly after it was announced that Duck Commander would sponsor NASCAR's spring Sprint Cup 500 race, now known as the "Duck Commander 500."
