Not exactly a long bowl trip for SMU

December, 4, 2010
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Now that the Mustangs have officially accepted a bid to the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, they can start making travel plans for the game. That shouldn't be too difficult, figuring the game is at Gerald J. Ford Stadium.

The festivities will take place in Fort Worth. And it's likely the practices will as well, meaning the team will probably stay at a hotel in Fort Worth to get the bowl experience.

No, it's not Hawaii. But it's a reward for yet another winning season, one that included the West Division title in Conference USA.

SMU takes on Army, who at 6-5 will finish its season against Navy in Philadelphia next Saturday.
