The Military Bowl, which originally was dubbed "The Congressional Bowl," started in 2008 at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. Starting with the 2013 edition, the game will be played at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis, Md.
Prior to the game's debut, Navy and the ACC agreed to participate in the game. The ACC would provide its ninth-best team for the bowl as long as the team was bowl eligible. The initial Military (then Eaglebank) Bowl game was between Navy and Wake Forest.
Currently, a team from the ACC will face either a C-USA team or one of the military academies. Starting in 2014, the bowl will be contested between the ACC and the AAC.
• In the inaugural game in 2008, Wake Forest QB Riley Skinner was a perfect 11-for-11 with 166 yards and a touchdown in his team's 29-19 victory against Navy.
• In 2010, Maryland sent head coach Ralph Friedgen off into retirement in a big way, as the Terrapins got a 51-20 win against East Carolina. Da'Rei Scott led the effort with 200 rushing yards, including a 91-yard TD run in the fourth quarter.
