EagleBank Bowl

Eagle Bank Bowl Tickets

The EagleBank Bowl is also known as the Congressional Bowl. Started in 2008 it is one of the two newest college bowl games as part of the NCAA bowl game schedule (with the other college bowl game being the St. Petersburg Bowl). This first game in 2008 was a match-up between Navy and Wake Forest University. The two teams had played earlier in the season and Navy was victorious 24–17. In the bowl game rematch, however, Wake Forest won 29–19.

Even before the first game was approved, Navy and the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) agreed that the ACC would provide its ninth-best team for the bowl, assuming that the league had nine bowl eligible (records of 6-6 or better) teams. BUT, if the primary options do not provide two bowl eligible teams to play or another bowl chooses one of those teams, the committee can select a team from the Mid-American Conference, Conference USA, or the Big Ten Conference as a replacement. For the 2009 Eagle Bank Bowl we will see a match-up of the UCLA Bruins versus the Temple Owls. Game location is going to be the well-known RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.

RFK Stadium opened its doors in 1961 and originally offered almost 56,000 seats. It was built as a multi-purpose stadium. In 2005 the Washington Nationals moved into RFK stadium. The seating arrangement had to change to accommodate the switch between soccer game setup and baseball game setup. Due to that change the seat capacity was reduced to 46,000 seats. When the Nationals moved out to occupy Nationals Park, the seat arrangements remained the same which leaves the stadium with 46,000 seats for the Eagle Bank bowl.
