Navy to Play Middle Tennessee State in Armed Forces Bowl


Navy (7-4) will play Middle Tennessee State (8-4) in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl on Monday, Dec. 30 in Ft. Worth, Texas it was announced today by Brant Ringler, the Executive Director of the bowl game. Kickoff is set for 10:45 AM (11:45 AM in Annapolis) at Amon G. Carter Stadium on the campus of Texas Christian University and will be televised nationally by ESPN and broadcast nationally by ESPN Radio.

The Armed Forces Bowl is Navy’s 19th bowl game all-time and the school’s 10th in the last 11 years. This will be the fifth time that Navy has played in the state of Texas for a bowl game and the first since the Mids 35-13 rout of Missouri in the 2009 Texas Bowl in Houston. Navy has also played in the 2003 EV1.net Houston Bowl (lost to Texas Tech, 38-14), the 1964 Cotton Bowl in Dallas (lost to Texas, 28-6) and the 1958 Cotton Bowl in Dallas (beat Rice, 20-7).

The bowl game will mark the first-ever meeting between Navy and Middle Tennessee State. The Blue Raiders will enter the game having won their final five contests and scoring 40 or more points in four of their final five games. 

Texas and Tennessee are two of Navy’s most highly recruited areas as the Midshipmen have 19 players from Texas and 10 from Tennessee.

“We are excited about the opportunity to travel to Fort Worth and play in a first-class bowl game against a very good opponent,” said Naval Academy Director of Athletics Gladchuk. “The city of Fort Worth, the stadium, the hospitality from the community and the bowl administration present as fine a postseason experience as we could possibly enjoy.”
