Two of the best teams in the sport of college football are set to take the field for
the Armed Forces bowl this winter. The Armed Forces Bowl is held each and every year, and every year fans in attendance are
treated to some incredible action on the football field. Featuring at least one team affiliated with the United States military

rabid college football fans.
Last season the Navy Midshipmen took down Middle Tennessee State by a score of 24-6. The

at Amon G. Carter Stadium this season for the 2015 game, and you can be one of them.

Stadium. The Armed Forces Bowl has featured some incredible competition over the years, and fans know to expect top-rate pigskin

by California in 2007, as the Bears defeated the Air Force Falcons in an offensive shootout that ended in a score of 42-36.

finally broke through in 2009 thanks to the 47 points they were able to put up on those same Houston Cougars. Thus far, Air
Force, Army and Navy have all secured one victory in this game. The 2014 game will feature the Army Black Knights.
