On Friday, the slate of bowl games gets kicked off with the 2013 Military Bowl, featuring a match up against the 9-4 Marshall Thundering Herd of Conference-USA and the 7-5 Maryland Terrapins of the ACC.
Marshall comes into this one reeling from their loss to the Rice Owls in the conference championship game a few weeks ago. Aside from that, the Thundering Herd have shown some amazing strides this season as a legitimate contender once again, this time outside of the MAC.
Maryland comes in having barely met the bowl eligibility criteria, after starting out the year 5-0 before being brought back down to earth, 63-0, by the Florida State Seminoles. Injuries have also not been very kind to head coach Randy Edsall and his program in this their last year as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
