WASHINGTON - In the aftermath of Navy's 29-19 loss to Wake Forest yesterday in the inaugural EagleBank Bowl at RFK Stadium, emotions were raw for the Midshipmen. Only some of those feelings had to do with the game itself. There were the tears shed by first-year head coach Ken Niumatalolo, but there was also frustration spewed from quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada after his injury-marred season ended an otherwise spectacular career. Niumatalolo's eyes were still red and his cheeks moist after leaving the locker room.

A matchup with undefeated Boise State on its home field in the Humanitarian Bowl emerged yesterday as Maryland's most likely bowl scenario, but the Terrapins' spot in the Dec. 30 game was not guaranteed. The Humanitarian Bowl is intrigued by a possible matchup of two undefeated teams - Boise State and Ball State. If Ball State commits, the Terps would be bypassed and would probably end up with an at-large bid to the Motor City Bowl in Detroit or another game, according to bowl officials and others.

COLLEGE PARK - After declines in attendance at Washington's RFK Stadium over the past two years, Military Bowl officials say they hope to sell out this year's game between Maryland and Marshall at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis on Dec. 27. The first-ever bowl game at a service academy represents a fresh start for the bowl, which drew an announced 17,835 for last year's San Jose State-Bowling Green matchup at the 46,000-seat RFK...

WASHINGTON - As Navy cornerback Rashawn King raced toward the end zone after scooping up a fumble in the first quarter of yesterday's EagleBank Bowl at RFK Stadium, an interesting thought went through his head. "I'm thinking I've got to get those yards that I didn't get against Pitt, everybody's been telling me," said King, who had a 91-yard return on an interception against Pittsburgh this season. "I was glad I got those back. I've never been in the end zone before. I felt like Shun White feels a little bit."

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - After watching his team lose Saturday for the third time in four games, Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen was left guessing yesterday - just as Terrapins fans were - which bowl the team might be invited to. In a 20-minute media conference call, Friedgen mentioned four bowls the Terps could play in - each with Atlantic Coast Conference tie-ins. He didn't dismiss the possibility that Maryland could be invited to an at-large game without an ACC link. While Friedgen didn't play favorites, it was evident from interviews with other school officials that the Terps would like to play in the Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 27 in Charlotte, N.C. The game, close enough for fans from the Baltimore/Washington area to drive to, could pit the Terps against border rival West Virginia.

Boston College fired coach Jeff Jagodzinski yesterday, days after he was warned of dismissal if he interviewed for the coaching job with the New York Jets. BC athletic director Gene DeFilippo told Jagodzinski on Saturday that his job would be in jeopardy if he went through with the Jets interview. Jagodzinski met with the team Tuesday night. A few hours later, at a meeting lasting about 25 minutes, DeFilippo told Jagodzinski he was out. DeFilippo said he fired Jagodzinski, 45, over a "difference of vision for the future."

Maryland, Syracuse, Pittsburgh and Boston College are in the mix for the Military and AdvoCare V100 bowls, according to bowl officials. But the games won't make their picks of the Atlantic Coast Conference schools until the weekend.   “We won't know until Sunday,” said Steve Beck, president and executive director of the Military Bowl, which will be held Dec. 27 in Annapolis. The AdvoCare V100 Bowl  -- which is Dec. 31 in Shreveport, La. -- also won't finalize its matchups until Sunday because “we have to see who the other bowls ahead of us are taking,” said Pesky Hill of the selection committee.

The Naval Academy will host its first-ever bowl game this year, as organizers announced Monday the move of the 2013 Military Bowl from RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. to Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis in December. “This move puts our game into a facility that honors the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces,” said Steve Beck, DC Bowl Committee president and executive director. “The big benefit for other schools coming in, if you talk to college players, playing at a military academy is unique and special.

Maryland football coach Ralph Friedgen and a top Military Bowl official said Tuesday that Terps fans need to attend the Dec. 29 game here to demonstrate to high-level bowl games that they are committed to their team. "The dilemma we're in right now is our fans really need to come out and support us because I think we've got a chance to send a message to these people that turned us down that we do support the program," Friedgen said. Friedgen appeared at a Military Bowl event in a downtown Washington hotel as another of his players — cornerback Dexter McDougle — was about to undergo surgery for a motor scooter accident.

Maryland learned Sunday that it will play in the Military Bowl at Washington's RFK Stadium — an outcome that seemed to puzzle and disappoint a school that believed it had earned the right to travel to a higher-level bowl game far from campus. The Terps (8-4, 5-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) will be matched on Dec. 29 at 2:30 p.m. against East Carolina (6-6), which finished in a tie for fourth place in Conference USA. Maryland did not want to be disrespectful to the Military Bowl, which is in its third year — it was formerly called the EagleBank Bowl — and benefits the USO. But it was no secret that the Terrapins hoped and expected to be invited to an upper-echelon bowl game.

PHILADELPHIA - -For the players at Army and Navy, the first Thursday in December has usually been a time to put the finishing touches on their preparation for their annual rivalry game. But this year, on the first Thursday in December, Army senior defensive tackle Victor Ugenyi wasn't at practice. He was at Lincoln Financial Field, answering questions from reporters and giving a short speech at the annual Army-Navy media luncheon. The Army-Navy game, which had traditionally been played on the first Saturday in December, was moved back by a week to give it more exposure.
