The official pairing won't be finalized until Sunday night, but we know at least one team set to play in the Dec. 27 Military Bowl at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

The Thundering Herd (9-4) fell Saturday to Rice, 41-24, in the Conference USA Football Championship Game.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have the Thundering Herd travel to the National Capital Region,” Military Bowl president and executive director Steve Beck said in a release. “As evidenced on the field this season, Marshall has a terrific team and we are sure their fans will enjoy our hospitality.”

Maryland is likely to be its dance partner in Annapolis. Bowl officials are expected to officially announce the matchup at 8:45 p.m. Sunday.
