Opening at 9 a.m., admission to the tailgate is free and will feature music, games, food & beverages from fantastic Annapolis restaurants, and exciting giveaways for the first arrivals!

The Military Bowl will be benefiting the USO and will provide at least $100,000 to the USO. Complimentary tickets to troops and their families will also be distributed for the game through the USO of Metropolitan Washington-Baltimore in early December.
