Armed Forces Bowl Makes Temp Move, From TCU To SMU
Aug. 17, 2010
DALLAS (AP) -The Armed Forces Bowl is moving its 2010 game to the SMU campus, a temporary switch during renovations to the stadium where the bowl played its first seven games.
Bowl officials said Tuesday that the Dec. 30 game will be played at SMU in Dallas with plans to return to the TCU campus in Fort Worth for 2011.
TCU announced plans Monday for a $105 million renovation of 80-year-old Amon G. Carter Stadium. The project will begin after the Horned Frogs' final home game Nov. 13.
Armed Forces Bowl executive director Brant Ringler says Fort Worth "certainly remains the home" of the bowl.
The decision to move the 2010 bowl was agreed upon by officials from TCU and the bowl, which began in 2003.
