Game day is finally here, as the Military Bowl is set to kick off Wednesday in DC. Toledo and Air Force will bring their high-powered offenses to town, hoping to put on a show for the crowd at RFK.
After losing head coach Tim Beckman to Illinois, the Toledo Rockets enter the game led by new head coach Matt Campbell. The 32 year-old was given the reins on a interim basis for only a few short days before he was given the job full time. He will lead a Rockets team that boasts a two-quarterback attack and one of the most prolific offenses in the country.
Air Force is led by Troy Calhoun, the run-happy coach of this year's Commander-In-Chief's Trophy recipients. They average more than 320 yards per game on the ground - the second highest mark in the country. Both these offenses are ranked in the top twenty in the country.
Everybody's favorite Maryland grad, Pam Ward, will have the call with Dan Hawkins this afternoon on ESPN.
Game date, time: 4:30 pm ET, Wednesday, December 28
Location: RFK Stadium, Washington, D.C.
TV channel: ESPN
2010 winner and loser: Maryland 51 - East Carolina 20
