Leaning On Past Relationships Lands Navy-LA Tech Matchup

By Troy Phillips

Relationships pay, especially in the bowl business. If the Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl can’t get its hands on a team, it has a knack for finding another good one.

No Big 12? No problem.

The bowl again dipped into the atlarge pool for its 14th year, this time pairing Louisiana Tech (8-5, 6-2 Conference USA) against Navy (9-4, 7-1 American Athletic) on Dec. 23 at TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. CT.

The U.S. Air Force Academy (2007-2009, 2012 and 2015), the U.S. Military Academy (2010) and the U.S. Naval Academy (2013, 2016) have all participated in the bowl. It is the eighth time in the past 10 years that an academy is playing in the contest.
