In this Nov. 9, 2013 file photo, Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown, left, throws to a receiver as he is pressured by Syracuse linebacker Dyshawn Davis during an NCAA college football game in College Park, Md. Maryland won't have to cross the state line for its first bowl appearance since 2010. The Terrapins will face Marshall in the Military Bowl on Dec. 27. The game will be held at the home stadium of the Naval Academy, which is around 28 miles from the Maryland campus.

The Military Bowl will be played at the Navy-Marine Corps Stadium in Annapolis, Md., for the first time this Friday. It's also the first time any bowl game will be played at a military academy. 

The University of Maryland will face Marshall University in the annual college football game. 

Steve Beck, director of the Military Bowl, said the move from RFK Memorial Stadium in D.C. made sense for an event designed to honor service members and their families.

"Moving the game to the stadium has created a lot of buzz in the small community of Annapolis and people around the Washington area are really getting behind this game," Beck said. 

This game will be the first time Maryland has played in the stadium since 1965, according to Beck.
