FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Aerospace giant Lockheed Martin Corp. is taking over as title sponsor of the Armed Forces Bowl.
Bowl officials announced Friday the three-year deal that goes through the 2016 game played on the TCU campus. Financial details weren't released, but the deal includes an option for more games.
Armed Forces Bowl executive director Brant Ringler says Lockheed Martin's deep commitment to the armed services is a perfect fit with the bowl, which will be played for the 12th time in December.
Lockheed Martin, which has more than 14,000 employees in Fort Worth, replaces Bell Helicopter, which had been the title sponsor since 2006. Bell will remain as a sponsor at a lower level.
