WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman, benefiting the USO, announced today that Virginia Tech and the University of Cincinnati have accepted bids to play in this year’s game. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, Dec. 27 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.

“We could not be more excited about this matchup,” Military Bowl President & Executive Director Steve Beck said. “Virginia Tech is an incredibly popular team in our region and Cincinnati is one of the nation’s hottest teams. We are certain that both teams will be well represented in Annapolis on gameday.”

This will be the 11th game between the teams, with the series tied 5-5. Cincinnati won the teams’ most recent meeting, 27-24 on Sept. 29, 2012, at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. The Hokies and Bearcats have played twice previously in bowl games, with Virginia Tech winning 20-7 in the Orange Bowl following the 2008 season and Cincinnati winning 18-6 in the Sun Bowl following the 1946 season.

Virginia Tech (6-6) will be playing in a bowl game for the 22nd consecutive season, the second-longest active streak in the nation and the fifth-longest all-time.

Cincinnati (9-3) is playing in a bowl game for the fourth consecutive season. The Bearcats closed the regular season with seven consecutive victories to earn a share of the American Athletic Conference title.

Virginia Tech Coach Frank Beamer and Cincinnati Coach Tommy Tuberville have faced off one other time, when Tuberville’s Auburn team capped an undefeated season with a 16-13 victory over Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl following the 2005 season.

Better late than never, we suppose...the American Athletic Conference finally released home and away opponents for the 2014 football season (click above for larger image).

 

While we won't even get into the absurdity of the Bearcats not playing the University of Central Florida for the second year in a row, we now know the following:

 

Home games: 

 

  • ECU - a fan base known to travel, coming off a 10 win season in 2013 - we look forward to hosting Pirates fans and hope that they seek us out when they're making their tailgating plans

 

  • USF - can't really anticipate much, if any presence, from our old Big East foes

 

  • Memphis - let's be honest, UM fans don't show up for their own home games, so we don't expect to see much blue at PBS

 

  • Houston - a relative unknown - solid first season in the AAC and returning the '13 AAC Rookie of the Year in John O'Korn.  Could be a good matchup, hopefully some Texans come up north for some real chili.

 

  • Out of conference - Toledo & Miami of Ohio

 

 

Road games:

 

  • Tulane - Two good reasons to make this road trip a top priority for 2014:  the Green Wave is opening a new, on campus, stadium...and BOURBON STREET!  As long as this game is not a weeknight game, you can count us in!

 

  • UCONN - Seems like the Huskies still have plenty of rebuilding to do after a 3-9 season, we will probably save our travel budget for other games

 

  • SMU - Dallas has potential to be a fun trip, but definitely not driveable...unlikely road trip in 2014

 

  • Temple - We've got the trip to the City of Brotherly Love circled as a potential road trip for this year

 

  • Out of conference - OSU & Miami (FL) - we will be attending both of these games!

 

More info will be posted in the future as dates are finalized and plans are made.  See you all soon!
