Inaugural EAGLEBANK BOWL game: Navy vs. Some ACC Team That Can Win Six Games.

The nation's capital formally unveiled its newest sports prize Wednesday, the EagleBank Bowl, one of two new games sanctioned by the NCAA this year and one that needs a team such as Navy — located in nearby Annapolis, Md. — to fit into its military theme.

As a new kid on the block, the game will start on the bottom rung: an 11 a.m. Saturday kickoff at RFK Stadium on Dec. 20, the first of 34 bowls in the upper tier of Division I.

This year's game will pit Navy against the No. 9 eligible team from the Atlantic Coast Conference — assuming, of course, both teams win at least six games.
