The Military Bowl will match a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference against one from Conference USA and will be played Dec. 27. ESPN will broadcast the afternoon game.
As the final days of last November came to a close, Howard University athletic director Louis "Skip" Perkins faced a daunting challenge: turn around a withering football program that bore a 4-29 record from 2008 to 2010. That task will begin in earnest Saturday RFK Stadium to glimpse the renewal of a prominent rivalry that has laid dormant for the past 14 years.
"Nobody's ever happy about small crowds," Moses said. "The crowd size is determined by the teams."
Moses said he wasn't sure what kind of financial hit the city would take by no longer hosting the game, but he noted that all of the other events associated with the bowl will still take place in Washington.
