Key points: The Armed Forces Bowl celebrates Americans who serve and have served the country through the military. Navy is making its Fort Worth debut this year. Air Force has played in the Armed Forces Bowl four times and Army once. Navy sophomore quarterback Keenan Reynolds is the catalyst for the Midshipmen on offense and has run for a national-record 29 touchdowns in Navy’s option attack. The previous record for rushing touchdowns as a QB was 27 —Navy’s Ricky Dobbs and Kansas State’s Collin Klein both hit that mark. Reynolds topped 1,000 yards rushing and passing and had 27 total touchdowns. Middle Tennessee started the year 3-4 before reeling off five straight wins to end the season. The Blue Raiders have a strong rushing game and average 208.3 yards a game on the ground, 24th in the nation. Jordan Parker leads the way and has 741 rushing yards and six touchdowns.

Tarrant ties: Navy sophomore defensive end Rex Montes played at Colleyville Heritage, and freshman offensive lineman Jeremiah Robbins played at Arlington High.
