Armed Forces Bowl to be played in January

FORT WORTH, Texas -- The Armed Forces Bowl will be played in January for the first time.

Bowl officials announced that the 12th annual game on the TCU campus will be played next Jan. 2.

If Army becomes bowl eligible during the upcoming season, the Black Knights will have a spot in the game that is scheduled for a noon ET kickoff. The opposing team is set to come from the American Athletic Conference.

Middle Tennessee State defeated Navy 24-6 in the Armed Forces Bowl this past Dec. 30.

After the first four games (2003-06) were played on Dec. 23 each year, the bowl has since been held on Dec. 30 or 31, with the exception of 2012 when it was played Dec. 29.
