12/27 Military Bowl vs Virginia Tech 1pm, ESPN




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.

We're a little bit late this year, but like 2013, we like to get a head start on bowl game planning.  While all of this is very early, hotels are non committal and if you know for sure that you'll be following the Bearcats in the post season, it's nice to lock in your hotel before teams are announced and demand goes up.
