Via Fanhouse, the East Carolina Pirates will be the Conference USA representative in the 2010 Military Bowl. The Pirates finished 6-6 after a 5-2 start, but won the CUSA for the second consecutive year.
The Pirates will await an opponent from the ACC that will be determined at a later date. The ACC will take part in the Military Bowl for the next few years, facing off against Navy in 2011, Army in 2012 and a member of the Big 12 in 2013.
In last year's Military Bowl, the UCLA Bruins defeated the Temple Owls 30-21. The Military Bowl, in its third year, will take place December 29 at 2:30 PM at RFK Stadium.
