Report: United Airlines, L.A. Coliseum agree to record 15-year naming rights deal
The United Airlines Coliseum is the richest naming rights deal in college football
United Airlines has reportedly agreed to a 15-year deal to have its name tied to the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, home of USC football and, for a short time, the Los Angeles Rams of the NFL.
