WASHINGTON | Maryland will be able to take the subway to its bowl game.

The Terrapins accepted a bid Sunday to the Military Bowl. They will face East Carolina at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 29.

Maryland had to settle for the short trip despite an 8-4 record and a 5-3 record in the Atlantic Coast Conference. And the Terrapins were not happy about it.

Athletic director Kevin Anderson said he’s “disappointed with the process.”

Maryland had to settle for the short trip despite an 8-4 record and a 5-3 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

The Military Bowl was slated to get the No. 8 selection from the ACC, and Anderson said he’ll speak to conference representatives to get “a better understanding” of what happened.

The Military Bowl is in its third season and was formerly known as the EagleBank Bowl.

East Carolina finished 6-6. The Conference USA team accepted its invitation last week.

This will be the first meeting between the schools.
