The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman kicks off for the 10th time on Dec. 28 at 1:30 p.m. ET at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, featuring a matchup between representatives from the Atlantic Coast Conference and the American Athletic Conference. Organized by the DC Bowl Committee, the Military Bowl serves as a premier regional event benefiting the USO and other organizations supporting members of the Armed Forces and their families. Since its inception in 2008, the Bowl has donated more than $700,000 to the USO and provided more than 25,000 complimentary tickets for troops and their families.


With first-rate participants and events, the Military Bowl seeks to positively impact the regional economy, generate broad support for the USO and honor the U.S. military.
