If Army wins in 2010, Knights to land in Fort Worth

April, 16, 2010
Army Black Knights haven't played in a bowl game since 1996 and the start of the 2010 season is still five months away, but the U.S. Military Academy already knows its bowl destination if it can qualify for a postseason game: The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl.

The Fort Worth-based bowl reached an agreement with Army to play in the 2010 game at TCU's Amon G. Carter Stadium. The Black Knights of the Hudson would join other military institutions Air Force, which played in the past three Armed Forces Bowl games, and Navy, which has an agreement to play in the 2013 game.

Army fell one game short of bowl eligibility in 2009 under first-year coach Richard Ellerson.

The bowl is currently slated to feature a team from Conference USA against a team from the Mountain West Conference.

the Black Knights must have six wins prior to their annual game with Navy (Dec. 11) in order to secure their spot. The 2010 Army schedule features home games against Hawai'i, Temple, Air Force, Yale and the North Texas Mean Green.

Cadet road games will be at Eastern Michigan, Rutgers, Kent State, Duke, Northwestern and Louisiana Tech with neutral site contests against Notre Dame and Navy.
