Big time college football action.
The 2017 Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl will feature the Big Ten Conference facing off against Army. Army is scheduled to be the home team, and the Big Ten representative serving as the visitor.
In 2013, the Armed Forces Bowl became the first game to have hosted all three service academies. These include five appearances by the United States Air Force Academy (2007 and 2015 vs. Cal, 2008 and 2009 vs. Houston, and 2012 vs. Rice), two appearances by the United States Naval Academy (2013 vs. Middle Tennessee, 2016 vs. Louisiana Tech) and the United States Military Academy (2010 vs. SMU).
