2013 Armed Forces Bowl: Navy accepts bowl bid, will play Mountain West team

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Navy will play a Mountain West team in the 2013 Armed Forces bowl game.

The Navy Midshipmen became bowl eligible on Saturday as they defeated South Alabama on Saturday, 42-14, and with two games to spare. This is Navy's 10th bowl bid in the team's past 11 years; 2011 was the last time that Navy did not appear in a bowl game.

"Congratulations to the U.S. Naval Academy football team on becoming bowl-eligible for the fifth time in six years under Coach Niumatalolo's watch," said Brant Ringler, the Executive Director of the Armed Forces Bowl. "The Armed Forces Bowl and the City of Fort Worth are very excited to roll out the red carpet for Navy's football team, its midshipmen, alumni and fans."

Navy will be taking on the Mountain West who will send the leagues third team, or selection for this bowl game. Actually, the MIddies could be taking on the Mountain Wests's fourth team since Fresno State is currently on pace to earn a BCS bowl bid.

Bowl projections are out and it looks like Navy likely will be playing San Diego State, but there are some that feel Colorado State could be heading to this game.
