With the U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen football team heading to Fort Worth, Texas in December, the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl has become the only collegiate football bowl game in history to have all three United States Service Academies play in its annual game that honors America’s Armed Forces.
Surviving stormy seas with fierce resolve and determination, the doggedly disciplined U.S. Naval Academy Midshipmen football team won their sixth game last weekend to become eligible to compete in the 11th annual Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth. The Mids earned their 10th trip to a bowl game in the last 11 years last Saturday with their 42-14 senior day victory in Annapolis over South Alabama.
