2012 Military Bowl
For decades, Washington DC football fans watched bowl game after bowl game, played all across the country. Eventually, a couple fans decided the nation's capital deserved its own game too, and set out to make it happen. They did their homework, leveraged the government, and put together a committee. Then, they garnered support from the Army, Navy, and the NCAA. Next thing you know, the brand new bowl game was picked up by ESPN. That was in 2008, when it was known as the EagleBank Bowl. Now, the Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman gets its name from its new title sponsor, and celebrates its 5th year on December 27th, 2012.
Military Bowl tickets are available to active-duty military and their families at local USO centers, close to game day. These tickets are free vouchers for the best available seats on the day of the game.
