The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl returns to Fort Worth in 2012 as a lead-in game on Saturday, Dec. 29.

The game was played at at SMU's Gerald J. Ford Stadium the last two seasons because of the $143 million renovations to TCU's Amon G. Carter Stadium. It drew a game-record 36,742 fans in 2010, when Army defeated SMU on its home turf, 16-14. BYU rallied over Tulsa for a 24-21 victory in last year's edition.

ESPN and ESPN Radio will air the game, with kickoff set for 10:45 a.m. CT.

"We are very pleased to have our 10th anniversary game featured on ESPN as the Saturday lead into other bowl games," bowl executive director Brant B. Ringler said. "We also look forward to continuing our great relationship with TCU after staging several highly successful events at Amon G. Carter Stadium for the first seven years of the bowl game."

Ticket information will be released through the Armed Forces Bowl website. Capacity at the renovated Amon G. Carter Stadium will be approximately 45,000.
