Military Bowl, a game with a larger purpose

Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman and 3M
  • We may not be able to join the teams battling out on the football field during the Military Bowl, but we sure can join the team that supports them. Recently, 3M announced a commitment to a three-year sponsorship agreement with the Military Bowl, joining a team of sponsors who support an incredible event with a powerful mission.

    Organized by the DC Bowl Committee, the Military Bowl serves as a premier regional event benefiting the United Service Organizations (USO) and other organizations supporting members of the Armed Forces and their families.

    The Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman kicks off for the 11th time on December 31 at 12:00 p.m. ET at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, featuring a matchup between representatives from the Atlantic Coast Conference and the American Athletic Conference.
