Correction: Military Bowl-ACC story
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a story Aug. 7 about college football, The Associated Press reported erroneously that the Military Bowl will have the fifth choice of teams from the Atlantic Coast Conference from 2014-19. The Military Bowl’s choice will be contingent upon the conference’s other bowl obligations.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Military Bowl extends deal with ACC through 2019
Military Bowl extends deal with Atlantic Coast Conference through 2019
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Military Bowl is extending its relationship with the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Bowl officials announced Wednesday that the game will include an ACC bowl eligible school from 2014-19. The order of selection will be contingent upon the conference’s other bowl obligations.
The ACC team will face a school from the American Athletic Conference, the splinter conference formed from the old Big East.
This year’s game is set to feature teams from the ACC and Conference USA on Dec. 27.
The Military Bowl is moving to Navy’s stadium in Annapolis, Md., this year after five years at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.
