Military Bowl 2012: RFK will host Bowling Green vs. San Jose St.
San Jose State will meet Bowling Green in the Dec. 27 Military Bowl at RFK Stadium.
Bowl officials finalized the matchup late Sunday as part of a chain reaction that started with Mid-American Conference champion Northern Illinois earning a spot in the Orange Bowl.
San Jose State (10-2) accepted an invitation to the five-year-old bowl Friday. The Spartans, ranked 24th in the final regular season Associated Press poll, are making their first postseason appearance since 2006 and just their second since 1990.
Quarterback David Fales has thrown for 3,798 yards and 31 touchdowns and ranks third nationally in passing efficiency for San Jose State, which defeated Navy 12-0 in Annapolis earlier this season.
Bowling Green (8-4) is making its first postseason appearance since the 2009 Humanitarian Bowl. The Falcons are coached by former Dave Clawson, who was the head coach at the University of Richmond from 2004 through 2007. It will be the first meeting between the schools.
The Military Bowl originally had agreements for Army and the No. 8 selection from the ACC. The Black Knights (2-9) long ago clinched a losing season, while the ACC produced only six bowl-eligible teams.
