The 2013 Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman benefiting the USO will be played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., on Friday, December 27 at 2:30 p.m. ET.
This year’s game will match a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference against an opponent from Conference USA. It will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.
It will be the first bowl game ever played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, which opened in 1959.
“This move puts our game into a facility that honors the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces,” DC Bowl Committee President & Executive Director Steve Beck said. “Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium is truly a venue that is in line with our mission of supporting our nation’s military and raising awareness for organizations supporting the Armed Forces. We expect a great matchup.”
While this year’s gameday operations will move to Annapolis, all other bowl events will remain headquartered in Washington, D.C., including the annual NCAA Football YouthClinic. This year’s clinic, hosted in partnership with Events DC and Positive Choices at Anacostia High School on June 15, is free and open to children ages 7 to 14. Registration is available at www.ncaafootballclinics.com.
For each of the past three years the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman has donated $100,000 to the USO and distributed 5,000 complimentary tickets to military personnel and their families.
