The Armed Forces Bowl, or Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl as it is officially named, is an annual college football game played in Fort Worth, Texas. The game is played at the Amon G. Carter Stadium. The Armed Forces Bowl game will feature a team from the Mountain West Conference (MWC) and a team from the Pac 10 Conference in 2007 and 2009. The MWC team will play a Conference USA team in 2008.
The Armed Forces Bowl game was first held in 2003 as the PlainsCapital Bank Bowl, and was played between Boise State and TCU. No Big 12 team was fielded because the Big 12 didn't have enough bowl eligible teams that season. The Big 12 was again unable to provide a team to the game the following year, and Marshall was selected to play Cincinnati. Kansas played Houston in 2005, and the 2006 Armed Forces Bowl featured Tulsa and Utah.
In 2011, the Armed Forces Bowl is being held at Gerald J. Ford Stadium at SMU while its usual home, Amon G. Carter Stadium in Forth Worth, undergoes renovation. Completed in 2000, Gerald J. Ford Stadium is home to the SMU Mustangs and has a capacity of 32,000. The Armed Forces Bowl will return to Amon G. Carter Stadium in 2012.
