By Troy Phillips

The 2018 season marked a rare surplus of bowl-eligible FBS teams with conference affiliations – four in all were locked out of bowls – making the fate of some independents like Army West Point go down to the wire. 

This year, the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl had an opportunity to do a solid for an old friend. One that richly deserved it.
