Army accepts Armed Forces Bowl bid


Army (6-5) accepted an invitation to the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, to be held Dec. 30 at SMU's Ford Stadium in Dallas. Army had an agreement to play in the game if it was bowl eligible before the regular-season finale against Navy and either Conference USA or the Mountain West couldn't fill their allotments.

The Black Knights, who will make their first bowl appearance since 1996, won their sixth game Nov. 13 against Kent State.
