"This move puts our game into a facility that honors the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces," said Steve Beck, DC Bowl Committee president and executive director. "The big benefit for other schools coming in, if you talk to college players, playing at a military academy is unique and special. It was one of the primary reasons we chose the Naval Academy's stadium. The other reasons, it aligns perfectly with what we're trying to do with the USO. It's also a fit for our title sponsor, who happens to be the largest sponsor, Northrop Grumman."
