Armed Forces Bowl at SMU
The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl will be played at SMU's Gerald Ford Stadium for the second straight season
while TCU continues renovations to Amon G. Carter Stadium.
This year's game takes place on Dec. 30 and will be broadcast on ESPN. Last year's game was moved to SMU because of improvements being made at TCU. The game is scheduled to return to Fort Worth in 2012, TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said.
Last year's game, in which Army defeated SMU 16-14, drew an SMU-record crowd of 36,742.
"We are excited to serve as the host of the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl for the second straight year," SMU AD Steve Orsini said in a statement.
