Military Bowl strikes deal with American

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) -

The American Athletic Conference and the Military Bowl have agreed to a six-year deal that starts in 2014 and will match the league against Atlantic Coast Conference.
 
A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press the Atlantic Coast Conference is expected to be the other league with a tie-in to the Military Bowl. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal with the ACC was still being completed.
 
ESPN.com first reported the deal with the ACC and the Military Bowl.
 
The Military Bowl is moving from RFK Stadium in Washington to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md., this season, where it's expected to make a permanent home.
 
Navy is slated to join the American, formerly known as the Big East, in 2015.
