Army to play in Armed Forces Bowl

Army has accepted a bid to compete in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl on Dec. 30 at SMU‘s Ford Stadium. SMU could turn out to be Army’s opponent.

The Mustangs play Saturday at Central Florida in the Conference USA Championship. If they win, they’ll likely be headed to the Liberty Bowl in Memphis on Dec. 31st. If they lose, staying home for a bowl could be a very real option. The bowl is being held at Ford Stadium while TCU’s Amon Carter Stadium undergoes renovations.

The Black Knights haven’t played in a bowl since 1996.

Organizers report that the bowl is officially a sellout – though that includes ticket allotments that each competing team will be responsible for selling.
