The Annapolis Capital says that an agreement has been reached to move the annual Military Bowl from Washington's RFK Stadium to the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium starting this season.

The game, which began as the EagleBank Bowl, has been played in D.C. every year since 2008. Navy has a tie-in with the bowl game, which would make qualifying for the bowl a de-facto home game for the Midshipmen.

San Jose State defeated Bowling Green 29-20 in what will end up being the final Military Bowl played in Washington. That game was played in front of just 17,835, the lowest figure in the game's history. According to the Birmingham News, that was the lowest attended college bowl game in seven years.
