WASHINGTON (AP) - The Military Bowl is moving this season from RFK Stadium in Washington to Navy-Marine Corp Stadium in Annapolis, Md.
The Military Bowl will match a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference against one from Conference USA and will be played Dec. 27. ESPN will broadcast the afternoon game.
The bowl has been at RFK since its inception in 2008, and the switch is only for this upcoming season. But Annapolis is likely to become the permanent home, with bowl organizers negotiating contracts with conference partners for 2014 and beyond.
Navy-Marine Corp Stadium was renovated in 2004 and holds 34,000. RFK Stadium seats more than 50,000 for football. The Military Bowl's average attendance has been about 27,000. Last season San Jose State and Bowling Green drew only 17,835.
The game is sponsored by Northrop Grumman.
