Navy took the first bowl bid of the college football season on Sunday.
The Navy MIdshipmen wasted no time becoming the first team of the 2012-13 college football season to accept a bowl bid, as they'll be headed to the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl in San Francisco, according to Lindsay Schnell.
Navy only became eligible for a bowl on Saturday, when it toppled the Florida Atlantic Owls, 24-17. The season started for the Midshipmen looking like it was going to be another wasted year. Navy went 1-3 in its first four games.
Gee Gee Greene has been the catalyst for Navy this year, rushing for over seven yards per carry on what's mainly a running offense. All told, the South Carolina native has 529 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
Next weekend, the Midshipmen will take on the Troy Trojans at Movie Gallery Veterans Stadium.
