The 2011 Armed Forces Bowl is usually played at TCU's Amon G. Carter Stadium, but for a second year in a row renovation of the venue will necessitate moving the game to SMU's Gerald J. Ford Stadium at University Park, Tx. The game is scheduled to return to TCU's stadium in 2012.
The Mountain West and the Pac-12 usually send teams here, but Independent teams are eligible for the game as well. That allows the Army Black Knights and the Navy Midshipmen to play in a bowl game that would fit them well. But neither team was bowl eligible this season.
Game date, time: 12:00 p.m. ET, Friday, Dec. 30, 2011
Location: Gerald J. Stadium, University Park, Tx.
TV channel: ESPN
2010 winner and loser: Army def. SMU, 16-14
