The fourth installment of the Military Bowl appropriately will feature one of the service academies, as 7-5 Air Force meets 8-4 Toledo at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. The game will be played on Wednesday December 28th, at 4:30 PM, and will air on ESPN.
The Falcons and their triple option offense have won four of five after dropping three straight at midseason. Tim Beckman's Rockets also are playing good football of late, winning seven of their final eight games, the only loss being a 63-60 shootout to Northern Illinois.
Air Force was victorious in last year's Independence Bowl, a 14-7 squeaker over Georgia Tech. Toledo fell to Florida International, 34-32, in the Little Casear's Bowl.
