The agreement, expected to be announced later today, will feature teams from that conference in the 2014, 2016 and 2018 games to be played at TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium. The Naval Academy, soon to join The American, is expected to receive the league’s bid to the 2016 game in Fort Worth as long as the Midshipmen meet minimum requirements to accept a bowl berth.
Navy also is slated to play in this year’s Armed Forces Bowl, set for Dec. 30, pending bowl eligibility.
During the 2014-2018 seasons, the team from The American that plays in Fort Worth would face an opponent from the Big 12 or the Big Ten.
