The SMU Mustangs won’t have to go far for their bowl game this year.
After going to Hawaii to play Nevada last year, the Ponies (7-6) will take on Army (6-5) in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl at SMU’s Ford Stadium. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. on Dec. 30.
The Mustangs lost to Central Florida, 17-7, in last week’s Conference USA championship game.
The Armed Forces Bowl is normally played at TCU’s Amon Carter Stadium, but stadium renovations pushed the game over to Ford Stadium.
