The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman Corporation, benefiting the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore (USO-Metro), a military support organization, announced that its 10th anniversary 2017 game will kick off Thursday, Dec. 28 at 1:30 p.m. ET at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
The game kicks off with one of Annapolis' newest traditions: the Military Bowl Parade, featuring The Budweiser Clydesdales. They will lead the parade line - along with Medal of Honor recipients, mascots, and team bands - from City Dock in downtown Annapolis to the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium as part of the many special events throughout the day.
The Official Military Bowl Tailgate kicks off in the Blue Lot on the west side of Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Admission to the tailgate is free and will feature music, games, food & beverages from fantastic Annapolis restaurants, and exciting giveaways for the first arrivals!
For the seventh consecutive bowl season, the Military Bowl will be benefiting the USO and will provide at least $100,000 to the USO. Complimentary tickets to troops and their families will also be distributed for the game through the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore in early December.
