    The Armed Forces Bowl will return to TCU's Amon Carter Stadium this December after spending the last two years at SMU.

    The game was temporarily moved to Dallas while Amon Carter was renovated.

    This year's bowl game will be played on Dec. 29, a Saturday, with kickoff at 10:45 a.m. and be broadcast on ESPN and the Armed Forces Network.

    "We are very pleased to have our 10th anniversary game featured on ESPN as the Saturday lead into other bowl games," said Brant B. Ringler, executive director of the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl. "We also look forward to continuing our great relationship with TCU after staging several highly successful events at Amon G. Carter Stadium for the first seven years of the bowl game."

    The bowl game is affiliated with the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy and Conference USA.

    Capacity for the completed Amon G. Carter Stadium will be approximately 45,000. Ticketing information will be released in the coming months.
