AAC, Military Bowl deal begins in 2014
NEW YORK -- The American Athletic Conference and the Military Bowl have agreed to a six-year deal that starts in 2014.
The Military Bowl is moving from RFK Stadium in Washington to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., this season, where it's expected to make a permanent home.
Navy is slated to join the American, formerly known as the Big East, in 2015.
The American is still working on the rest of its bowl lineup. The league is trying to keep affiliations with the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn., BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Ala., and the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Big East Commissioner Mike Aresco has said the conference is in the process of putting together a new bowl game to be played in south Florida at Marlins Park in Miami.
The conference would also like to land at least one postseason game in Texas, with SMU and Houston set to join this season, along with Central Florida and Memphis.
