When Navy got the word yesterday it would face 23rd-ranked Boston College in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 30 in Charlotte, N.C., its coach, players and athletic director saluted a quality opponent that has one of the top offenses in the Atlantic Coast Conference. They also tried to downplay their disappointment, since the Midshipmen did not get the game they craved. They will not enjoy a rematch with Maryland, which edged Navy, 23-20, in the 2005 season opener at M&T Bank Stadium, in a game that marked the first meeting between the schools in 40 years.

There is a new suitor courting the Navy football team for postseason appearances. Chet Gladchuk, the academy's athletic director, confirmed that an agreement has been made with the Meineke Car Care Bowl that makes the Midshipmen eligible to play in Charlotte, N.C., against an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent Dec. 30. "If we're bowl-eligible, we'll play in Charlotte," Gladchuk said. "We felt like we've been in Houston, which is in the deep South, and then on the West Coast for two years, and thought it was logical to strike a deal with a bowl game along the Eastern seaboard this time."

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland and West Virginia, regional rivals not scheduled to meet until the 2010 regular season, could play next month in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Charlotte, N.C. That's one of numerous bowl scenarios that Maryland fans and athletic officials contemplated yesterday as the Terrapins prepared for their final regular-season game Saturday at No. 20 Boston College. It's too soon to know to which bowl game the Terps will be invited, but it's not premature to speculate or to create wish lists.

When Navy makes its fourth consecutive postseason appearance Saturday in the Meineke Car Care Bowl against Boston College, the school in one sense cannot lose. The academy expects to reap a seven-figure payday, due in part to its ability to sell more than 20,000 tickets to the event and to its status as an independent school that is not required to share the wealth with members of a conference.

Charlotte, N.C. -- Navy has enjoyed numerous unprecedented achievements in the Paul Johnson era. The Midshipmen have swept Army and Air Force for four straight years and gone to four consecutive bowl games, and their senior class stands one victory shy of tying a record set nearly a century ago. But a victory today over 23rd-ranked Boston College in the Meineke Car Care Bowl would go down as the crowning feat during Johnson's five years in Annapolis....

Since stepping in for injured senior quarterback Brian Hampton, sophomore Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada has led Navy to a 4-1 record, including blowout victories over Duke, Eastern Michigan and Temple and the school's fifth straight win over Army. As a starter, the native of Kapolei, Hawaii, has rushed for nine of his team-high-tying 10 touchdowns and thrown three scoring passes, while helping the Midshipmen virtually seal their third NCAA rushing title during the past four seasons. But Kaheaku-Enhada is still looking at the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 30 against No. 23 Boston College as a chance to redeem himself.

So if the Ravens win one more game, are they bowl-eligible? Too bad their defensive ranking will suffer, at least a little, because of the garbage-time yardage they surrendered yesterday. Drew Brees threw for 383 yards, but he didn't exactly light 'em up. Reggie Bush fumbles, throws an interception and leaves the game with an injury. Later, he'll under-tip a waitress. We now know who's calling the plays. Jamal Lewis. It's also good to know that the Ravens' defense is just as adept at the tip drills as their offense.

Navy (9-3) vs. Boston College (9-3), When -- Today, 1 p.m. Site -- Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte, N.C. TV/Radio -- ESPN/1090 AM, 1500 AM, 1430 AM, 107.7 FM Scouting report When Navy has the ball -- The Midshipmen have virtually sealed their third NCAA rushing title in the past four years, so it's no secret that Navy needs to run the ball effectively out of its triple option to upset the Eagles. That means sophomore QB Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada needs to play much better than he did in a 26-14 victory over Army, when he missed numerous option reads and threw the ball poorly in easily his worst performance since taking over for injured Brian Hampton two months ago. Losing FB Adam Ballard in the Army game hurt, but Eric Kettani and Matt Hall are solid backups who need room to get started in the massive middle of the Boston College defense, ranked 13th against the run. The Mids must put together some long drives to keep Boston College QB Matt Ryan on the sidelines, and Navy probably will not survive without big plays on the outside from SBs Reggie Campbell and Shun White.

The Maryland football team couldn't beat Boston College during the regular season, but the Terps got the upper hand yesterday afternoon in a meeting behind closed doors. The Champs Sports Bowl selected Maryland over Boston College and Clemson, and the Terps will end their season Dec. 29 in Orlando, Fla., where they will face Purdue at 8 p.m. Maryland won a vote by a committee of about 200 scouts, who deliberated for more than two hours to pick from among three teams that finished with 5-3 records in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Atlantic Division.

COLLEGE PARK -- Before he left Byrd Stadium on Saturday night, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen met with bowl representatives to discuss the remaining postseason possibilities after a 38-24 loss to Wake Forest eliminated the Terps from the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game and a shot at the Orange Bowl. It was the first such meeting since 2003, but that accomplishment was tempered by the disappointment that Maryland had just squandered a chance at so much more. Friedgen headed home resigned to the fact that the Terps most likely will play their last game of the season on Dec. 29 or Dec. 30 - probably in the Music City Bowl, the Champs Sports Bowl, or against Navy in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

COLLEGE PARK -- Around noon yesterday, Gator Bowl Association officials were scrambling to find a plane ticket so chairman Scott Keith could attend today's 7:45 p.m. Maryland-Wake Forest game, which determines who advances to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game next weekend. The Gator Bowl Association also sponsors the ACC title game next Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla., so Keith will be bringing 10,000 tickets to the game to award to today's winner. When Boston College lost to Miami on Thursday night, the ACC bowl picture became somewhat clearer.
