Celebrating after a touchdown was deemed illegal when a champagne ceremony and catered reception extended the first quarter of one football game for seven hours. Watch a simpler game with today's Groupon: for $27, you get a premium reserved ticket ($55 value) to the Military Bowl, featuring the University of Maryland vs. East Carolina University at RFK Stadium.
The Military Bowl, formerly the EagleBank Bowl, was conceived as the premier regional event to benefit the USO and entertain crowds from miles around with elite pigskin scuffles. Witness the laws of physics waver as one of the nation's top defensive teams, UMD, collides with the offensive ferocity of ECU for the first time. Opened in 1961, the multi-purpose RFK Stadium was most notably home to the Washington Redskins for 36 seasons. Its historic halls and bustling balconies provide an engaging environment in which to support our troops and watch titanic athletes discourage grass from ever growing again.
