one team from the armed forces every year. That means that fans who attend this game always see the Army Black Knights, Navy

State by a score of 24-6. The Navy defense was tough in this game, refusing to allow Middle Tennessee to cross the goal line
for a touchdown. Two fourth quarter touchdowns for Navy put the game out of reach.

incredible competition over the years, and fans know to expect top-rate pigskin action when they head to the field each year.
The first Armed Forces Bowl following the name change of the game was won by California in 2007, as the Bears defeated the
Air Force Falcons in an offensive shootout that ended in a score of 42-36. Air Force would come up just shy yet again the
following year, losing to the Houston Cougars by a mere six points. The Falcons finally broke through in 2009 thanks to the

victory in this game. The 2014 game will feature the Army Black Knights.
