While many teams haven't lived up to expectations locally, the Navy Midshipmen have held up their end of the bargain.
In what has been an extremely disappointing year for local college football, one team has rose above the others to clinch a bowl bid in the 2012 season.
The Navy Midshipmen may not be the powerhouse team you associate with the D.C. area, but they will be the only ones still playing in the postseason. Others such as the Virginia Cavaliers, Virginia Tech Hokies and Maryland Terrapins are all on the outside looking in.
For its part, Navy (6-4) is projected to play in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl against the Pac-12's Washington Huskies.
On the national stage, the BCS National Championship is projected to be a duel between the Oregon Ducks and Kansas State Wildcats. Another game sure to draw eyeballs is the Rose Bowl, which currently is thought to be the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Nebraska Cornhuskers.
