CLEVELAND - The Mid-American Conference has reached an agreement with the Military Bowl for one MAC bowl eligible program to receive an invitation to play this season in the 2012 bowl game based in Washington, DC.

The Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman will be played at RFK Stadium on Thur., Dec. 27 at 3:00 pm ET and televised nationally by ESPN.

The MAC has had two programs participate in the bowl game based in Washington, DC in the last three years.  Last year, Toledo defeated Air Force, 42-41, and in 2009 then-member Temple lost to UCLA, 30-21, in the EagleBank Bowl.
