The military and college football have a strong relationship that dates back decades. Whether it's the annual Army-Navy game or the presentation of the Commander-in-Chief Trophy, the Armed Forces and football are inextricably linked. Now, for the first time in NCAA history, a postseason bowl game will be played at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. In 2013, the Military Bowl will move from Washington, D.C., to the home of the Midshipmen, according to CBS Sports. 

The Military Bowl is among the youngest postseason games in college football, with its history dating back  to 2008. Game officials say the change in location is the perfect way to honor the men and women who serve in the Armed Forces.

"Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium is truly a venue that is in line with our mission of supporting our nation's military and raising awareness for organizations supporting the Armed Forces. We expect a great matchup,"  DC Bowl Committee President and Executive Director Steve Beck said.

This isn't the only bowl game to pay tribute to the members of the military. The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, which last year featured Air Force, has been played every season since 2003.
