Armed Forces Bowl at SMU is a sellout

The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl announced Monday that it has sold more than 32,000 tickets for its Dec. 30 game and will pack SMU's Gerald J. Ford Stadium to capacity.

The game was moved this year from TCU's Amon G. Carter Stadium (44,000 capacity) because a $105 million renovation will have already knocked down the entire west-side seating, which included an upper deck and press box.

The bowl is scheduled to pit a Conference USA team against a Mountain West Conference team. Army signed an agreement to play in the game if it became eligible, which it did on Nov. 13, and so the Black Knights are expected in Dallas to take on a MWC foe.

Bowl officials will announce the two participating teams on Dec. 5. Standing-room only tickets are available for $10 and can be purchased at ArmedForcesBowl.com. The game will be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN Radio.
