This year's Military Bowl will be held December 27 and will feature the No. 8 selection from the ACC against Army (if eligible). With the announcement, the ACC's 2012 bowl slate has nearly been finalized:

Dec. 27: Military (ACC No. 8) vs. Army, 3
Dec. 27: Belk (ACC No. 5) vs. Big East, 6:30
Dec. 28: Independence (ACC No. 7) vs. Mountain West, 2
Dec. 31: Music City (ACC No. 6) vs. SEC, noon
Dec. 31: Peach (ACC No. 2) vs. SEC, 7:30
Jan. 1: Orange (ACC No. 1) vs. BCS pick, TBA

Dates for the Champs Sports Bowl (ACC No. 3) and the Sun Bowl (ACC No. 4) are still to be finalized.

Boston College plays Army during the regular season on October 6. For those worried that BC could get shut out of the ACC's lowest tier bowl so that the Military Bowl avoids a rematch of a regular season game, don't. Both teams have a ways to go before they have to worry about a possible bowl rematch. Army has been to just five bowl games in program history (and just one, in 2010, since 1996) while BC has a tough slate of games and just six home games to get to six wins.

The bowl will seek out other teams if Army doesn't end up bowl eligible or if the ACC can't place eight teams (or nine, in the case of two in the BCS) into bowl games.

Army finished last season 3-9 and faces Northern Illinois, Stony Brook, BC, Kent State, Ball State, Air Force and Temple at home this season. Road games at San Diego State, Wake Forest, Eastern Michigan, Rutgers and the year-end Army-Navy game.
